Rita gets paid $16 per hour for the
first 8 hours she works each day. She
earns 1.5 times her hourly pay rate for
time she works over 8 hours each day.
Rita’s work day for Monday is
described in the list below:
 Worked form 8:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
 Took a 45-minute lunch break
 Worked until 6:15 p.m.
Rita does not get paid for her lunch
break.
How much money did Rita earn for the
time she worked on Monday?

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
