Shara works 7/40 day, 5 days a week. Saul works 7/80 week each week. Find the number of hours each person works each week as a decimal. Which person works for the greater amount of time each week?
7/40 a day means that Shara works (7/40)*24=4.2 hours a day.
Multiplying 4.2 by 7, we get 29.4 hours per week, so Shara works 29.4 hours per week
Saul works 7/80 week each week
There are 168 hours in a week, so we multiply 7/80 by 168 to get 14.7 hours per week
Shara works more than Saul each week
Shara works 29.4 hours a week and Saul works 14.7 hours a week
