Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0322.5 is total in which she worked in 42 hours. Regular pay: $7.50(40 hours) = $300 Additional pay over 40 hours: $1.50($7.50) = $11.25/hour 40 hours + 2 additional hours = 42 hours $300 + ($11.25 + $11.25) = $322.5 Therefore, She earns $322.5 in 42 hours.
