x= regular hours worked
A.
Rate in dollars per hour times x, which is in dollars gives us dollars made:
Wages earned = W = 8x
If she had worked overtime, then W = 40*8 + 12y, where y is the number of overtime hours. If she made $500 dollars in a week, then the amount of overtime (if any) can be found from 500 = 40*8+12*y. If y turns out to be negative or zero, then use 500=40x to determine the number of hours worked since the number of overtime hours is zero. In either case, total number of hours worked is x+y.
