    ok, then in total she works for 45 hours. For the first 40 hours she is paid 8.50 per hour. This means she earns 40(8.50) or $340 for the first 40 hours. The last 5 hours she earns "time and a half." This means that she gets paid for 5 hours plus 5(1/2) or 7.5 hours at the rate of 8.50. So for those hours she earns 7.5(8.50) or a total of $63.75. Adding the two totals together she makes 340 + 63.75 or a grand total of $403.75.
