h = number of hours worked on Monday

The wording of the problem translates into algebra as

($8.50)[h + 2h + (3/4)h] = $127.50

8.50(h + 2h + 3h/4) = 127.50

Can you solve for h and finish from here?

I just noticed and fixed a typo in the equation. The number on the right should be 127.50 (I had 127.60 before). I am sure the equation is correct, given the wording of the question. I get

h = 4 hours

What does your book say?
