Lena works 34 hours monday to friday at her normal rate of pay.

On Saturday she gets an overtime rate of pay - which is 1.5 her normal rate.

 

She works for 4 hours on a Saturday.

Altogether Lena earns £320 for her week's work.

 

What is her normal rate of pay per hour?

 

Thanks

Let Lena's normal hourly rate = R

34R + 4[1.5R] = 320, solve for R

34R + 6R = 320

40R =320         divide both sides by 40

R = 320 / 40

R = 8 pounds - Lena's normal hourly rate.
