    FIRST: I hope this problem shows how important math is. One day this will be your money. Hopefully you will know how much money your boss owes you. :) So he works 53.5 hrs. This means he did 40 hrs + 13.5 overtime. 40 hrs times $8.20 is his regular pay. 13.5 hrs times $12.30 is his overtime pay. Now add up those two for the total. Hope this helps. :)
