    Try working it out again. After you've gotten the total number of seconds that he works, divide it by [(4*60)+48] then multiply the answer by 1000.

    Remember, with hours, you need to times 3600(or 60*60)

    Since first you need to convert to minutes, then seconds.

    would the typical equation be typed out as \[1000\div4 mins 48 seconds (all written \in seconds)=x \div4 hours 15 mins written \in seconds?\]
