Expert Answer

Step 1

Calculating the Sam’s total earnings for this workweek. We have,

Total wages  = Wages for Job A + Wages for Job B

Total wages = [Total hours worked x Rate per hour] for Job A + [Total hours worked x Rate per hour] for Job B

Total wages = [ 38 x $ 20 ] + [ 15 x $ 14]

Total wages = $ 760 + $ 210

Total wages = $ 920

Hourly rate = Total wages / Number of hours

Hourly rate = $ 920 / 53 = $ 17.36

Overtime hours = Total hour - standard weekly hour

Overtime hours = 53 - 40  = 13 hours

Overtime amount = 13 x 1.5 x $ 17.36 = $ 338.52

Total earnings = Total wages + Overtime amount

Total Earnings = $ 920 + $ 338.52 = $ 1,258.52

Therefore, the total earnings for the workweek shall be $ 1,258.52
