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?

asked by Shohanur
  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?
