Inbetween 8:15 a.m and 12:45 p.m is 4 hours and 30 minutes.

12:45 p.m.+45 minutes=1:30 p.m.

Inbetween 1:30 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. is 4 hours and 45 minutes

4+4=8

30+45=75

75 minutes=1 hour and 15 minutes=1 1/4 hours=1.25 hours

8*16=128

16*1.5=24

1.25*24=30

128+30=158

Rita get $158 for working
