Donald works 1 and 3/4 hour a day at a book store. if he is paid $7 a day, how much money will he make in 5 days?

  • MATH -

    This seems a little odd to me.

    if he is paid $7 per day and works 5 days, he should make $35.

    Is something missing from the question or is this a question where they want you to ignore the extra information?

    no

  • MATH -

    maybe $12.25 a day

  • MATH -

    No.. they said he makes $7 per day.

  • MATH -

    Do you mean $7 per day? Or $7 per hour??

  • MATH -

    my mistake. 7 dollars an hour

  • MATH -

    Do the math, then:

    1.75 x 7 x 5 = ?

  • MATH -

    61.25?

  • MATH -

    Put the dollar sign before the 6, and it'll be perfect.

  • MATH -

    The answer is $61.25, but I don't now how to get it

  • MATH -

    Writeacher is right!

  • MATH -

    its a simple 5th grade equation

  • MATH -

    but can someone please tell me how we got 1.75!?

  • MATH -
