Let the normal work wage for a week be N. Lyn receives 17.5% holiday load on 4 week normal wage.

The total amount that she receives in a week is N + N*17.5/100 = 1.175N

The total amount received by her for 4 weeks was $2350

1.175N = 2350/4

=> 1.175N = 587.5

=> N = 587.5/1.175

=> N = 500

Her normal week wage was $500
