Kelly's "rate" (r) is $8.00/hour --- r = $8.00/hour >>He works 40 hours at the regular rate (40r), 2 hours at time-and-a-half the rate (2*1.5*r), and 3 hours at double the rate (3*2*r). >>So, we have 40r + (2*1.5*r) + (3*2*r) = Total wages >> 40r + 3.5r + 6r = Total wages >> 49.5r = Total wages >> 49.5 hours x $8.00/hour = $396 >> Anthony -- "Unlocking potential through a love of learning"
