Just take his earnings and divide by the hours he worked

Hi

whenever numbers look horrible it is agood idea to see what you would do if the numbers were easier.   

so for this one you could ask yourself.  If I earn $10 for 2 hours work how much do I get per hour?

$5 because 10 divided by 2 = 5     $5 first hour +$5 second hour = $10  That works.

I took the dollars and divided by the hours. Mmmm

38.45 divided by 4.5 must give the right answer.
