A person is working 8 hours on Saturday and 8 hours on Sunday. She is being paid $18.00 per hour. What will her gross wages for the weekend be?
To solve, add the number of hours the person is working on Saturday and Sunday.
`8 + 8 =16 ` hours
Then, multiply his total working hours on the weekends by his rate per hour ($18).
`16` `hrs` `xx` `($18)/(hr)` `=` `$288`
Hence, his gross wage for the weekends is $288.
