40 hours x $15.20 = $608 - what Tim earned in regular pay.

51 hours - 40 hours =11 hours of overtime he worked.

Since you don't specify what the "usual rate for overtime" is, we can only check the gross pay.

Since $608 and $775.20 are @ $15.20 for 40 and 51 hours respectively, then will have to check the next amount of $858.80.

$858.80 - $608 =250.80 - this is overtime pay that Tim got. And we check to see the overtime rate:

$250.80 / 11 hours =$22.80 per hour for 11 hours of overtime, which is:

$22.80 / $15.20 =1.5 times regular pay, which is very common. Therefore Tim's gross pay is:

40 regular hours x $15.20 =$608 Tim's regular pay

11 hours of overtime x [1.5 x $15.20] =$250.80 Tim's ovetime pay.

**$608.00 + 250.80 = $858.80 Tim's gross pay.**
