    Need to simplify this strange problem

    Hello,

    I've got a strange 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.

    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 \frac {524}{5 \cdot 8} and that will give you the hourly wage
