# Last week you worked 18 hours and earned $256.50. What was your hourly rate? To determine To calculate: The rate of per hour, if$256.50 earned for the work of 18 hours.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided earned money is $256.50 for the work of 18 hours. Formula used: For dividing decimals when divisor is a whole number: Step 1: In the quotient put the decimal point exactly above the decimal point in the dividend. Step 2: Divide the numbers as whole numbers are divided. Add zeros to the right of dividend when needed. Calculation: Consider earned money and total hours,$256.50 and 18

To find the rate of per hour, divide them by first putting the decimal point in the quotient exactly above the decimal point in the dividend,

256.50÷18=18 .    256.50

Now, divide the numbers as whole numbers are divided,

256.50÷18=18  14
