    If she sold 12 items and makes 5 dollars per item. You could multiply both of those and gets the amount of money she made from selling clothes alone, what number do you get

    take what you get from that and do 101.25-(5*12) and divide that number by 5.5 (hourly wage) to find how many hours she worked

    41.25+60=101.25 41.25/5.5=7.5
