Question

Larisa earns $7 per hour.she worked 40 hours at the regular rate, 3 hours at time and half, and 6 hours at double time. Answers 1. Philomena Answer:$6.07/hr. if I understand the question properly.  See below.
Step-by-step explanation:
I don’t see the question, but will assume we want to find Larisa’s base pay.  The $7/hr given is the average for the work sequence noted in the problem. If this is incorrect, ignore the answer. ================================== Let x be Larisa’s base salary. We are told, I think, that in one stretch of time Larisa earned an average of$7/hour.  That was composed of:
Hours  Rate($/hr) 40 x 3 1.5x 6 2x 49 Her total income over this period would be: 40x +3(1.5x) + 6(2x) [The hours worked times the pay rate for each period] Her average income per hour would be: (40x +3(1.5x) + 6(2x))/49 which we are told is$7/hr.
(40x +3(1.5x) + 6(2x))/49 = 7
40x + 4.5x + 12x = 343
56.5x = 343
x = \$6.07/hr
