Wind song is paid $15.50 per hour, with overtime pay of time-and-a-half for saturday work and double time for sunday. calculate her gross pay if she worked 38 hours during the week (monday through friday) and 8 hours sunday. (round your answer to the nearest cent)

Accepted Solution

When we say "double time for Sunday," we can compute the pay by multiplying the pay by 2 and using the given hours, or we can multiply the hours by 2 and use the given pay. It may be easier to do the latter.... (38 h + 2Γ—8 h) Γ— ($15.50/h) = 54Γ—$15.50 = $837
Wind Song's gross pay for the week will be $837.00.
