Question

Ruben earns $4 an hour as a cashier and $5.50 and hour as a waiter. If he works 5 days per week, how much does he earn if he works 4 hours a days as a cashier and 3 hours a day as a waiter?

1 Answer

  • So to find how much Ruben will make if he works 4 hours a day as a cashier and 3 hours a day as a waiter for 5 days per week first we'll work on his cashier job. So he makes 4$ an hour as a cashier and her works 4 hours every day for 5 days, multiply 4 by 4 and you'll get 16, so he makes 16 dollars per day as a cashier. now that we know how much he makes a day we simply have to multiply 16 by 5 since he works for 5 days every week. 16*5 is 80, so Ruben makes 80 dollars working 4 hours a day for 5 days. Now we move onto his waiter job. he makes 5.50 an hour as a waiter and her works 3 hours a day. So we multiply 3 by 5.50 to get 16.5. Next, we multiply 16.5 by 5 since he also works 5 days a week as a waiter. 16.5*5 is equal to 82.5. now we add 82.5 and 80 to get 162.5. SO Ruben makes 162.5$ working both jobs 5 days a week
