## Answer ( 1 )

1. The  normal hourly rate is \$15.94
What is overtime rate?
The overtime rate that would apply to the 4 hours by which the hours worked of 34 hours exceed the normal hours of 30 hours is to be paid at 1.5 times the normal hourly rate, in other words, the overtime rate and the normal hour rate are determined thus:
normal time=X
overtime =1.5X
There are 30 hours of normal hour and 4 hours of overtime, hence, the total hours and amount paid per hour are combined together below:
total pay=(X*30)+(1.5X*4)
Total pay=30X+6X
Total pay=36X
Total pay=\$573.84
\$573.84=36X
X=\$573.84/36
X=normal hourly rate=\$15.94
The worker normal hourly rate is \$ 15.94  as computed above
