Need to simplify this strange problem
Hello,

I've got a strange :confused: problem I need to simplify:

$524 1 wk 1 day 1 wk x 5 days x 8 hr I thought I had to reduce everything to hours, but I don't know what to do with the money amount. Thank you so much for your help.:D • May 24th 2007, 07:15 PM Jhevon Quote: Originally Posted by tired6thgrader Hello, I've got a strange :confused: problem I need to simplify:$524 1 wk 1 day

Thank you so much for your help.:D

what is it you are trying to do? i suppose you want to find the hourly wage of someone who gets paid $524 working 5 days a week for 8 hours a day in that case, just work out the fractions, find$\displaystyle \frac {524}{5 \cdot 8}$and that will give you the hourly wage • May 24th 2007, 08:04 PM tired6thgrader Thank you, Jhevon Thank you for your help! The answer I got was$13.10.
