Hello,

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

$5241 wk1 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

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 PMtired6thgraderThank you, Jhevon
Thank you for your help!

The answer I got was $13.10.
