If i make 18 an hour how much is overtime


Asked by admin @ in Mathematics viewed by 127 People


If you work overtime you will receive time and a half for every hour over 40 hours. I currently get paid $12.00 an hour and i really want to make an extra 300.00 by working overtime. Ill need to work ______ extra hours.

Answered by admin @


Using a rule of three, it is found that:

I'll need to work 17 extra hours.

----------------------

  • The hourly pay is of $12.
  • For each overtime hour, you get hour and a half, thus 1.5*$12 = $18.
  • You want to make an extra $300, so, using proportions, by a rule of three, it is possible to find the number of extra hours.

1 hour - $18

x hours - $300

Applying cross multiplication:

18x = 300

x = \frac{300}{18}

x = 16.67

Rounding up:

I'll need to work 17 extra hours.
