A carpenter earns $11.00 per hour. He worked 3 1/4 hours on Wednesday, 7 1/4 hours on Thursday and 5 2/4 hours on Friday. How much money did he earn for the week?

Moe,

Assuming he did not work Monday the total number of hours worked is 3.25+7.25+5.5=16.00 hours he earns $11.00 for each hour worked so his earnings for the week are 11.00*16.00=$176.00
