Viola has a part time job in which she is paid an hourly basis for every hour up through 40 hours. For each hour after 40 hours, she gets paid 60% higher than her hourly wage. This past week, she earned a total of $644.80 for working 46 hours. What is violas regulat hourly wage?

Let 'x' be her usual hourly wage

     then 1.6 x   is her ovetime wage

         she worked 6 hours overtime   (6 hours past 40 hours)

          40 x    +    1.6x ( 6)  = 644.80       Solve for 'x' her regular wage....
