Sample Problem

Timmy wants to save $120 in order to buy a new bike. He makes $8 an hour at his local supermarket on a weekday but gets time-and-a-half (1.5x) pay on Sundays. After his 6 hour shift on Sunday, how much money will Timmy still need in order to buy his bike?

$

Solution

120 dollars – ((8 dollars) /hour × 6 hours × 1.5) = 120 dollars – 72 dollars = 48 dollars.
