1. "...She is paid 1 1/2 times the regular rate for all time exceeding 7 1/2 hours in a day or 37 1/2 hours per week."

There is ambiguity in the arrangement because it's either 7 1/2 hours a day or 37 1/2 hours a week. Employees do not always work five 7 1/2 days.

The following answer assumesovertime begins after a 7 1/2 hour day.

"she worked for 6, 0, 3, 7 1/2, and 8 hours on Saturday to Friday, respectively, and the Monday was a statutory holiday?"
So the pays are (hours*rate*factor)
Saturday 6*42.50*1
Sunday 0
Monday 3*42.5*2
Tuesday 7.5*42.50*1
Wednesday 7.5*42.50*1 + 0.5*42.50*1.5

You only need to check the hours, rate, and factors. If they are all correct and understandable, calculate the total for Sonja's paycheck.
