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?posted by JJ

no

Do the math, then:
1.75 x 7 x 5 = ?posted by Writeacher

61.25?

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