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?

1. 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?
