`52,500-: 26 = $2019.23 `

She earns $2019.23 per pay period. Pay period is biweekly therefore this is 80 hours.

`2019.23-: 80 = 25.24`

She earns $25.24 per hour. Time and a half = $37.86

Gross pay for a biweekly pay period is:

$2019.23 + 5($37.86) = 2019.23 + 189.30

**Her gross pay would be: `$2208.53` **
