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,

Now, divide the numbers as whole numbers are divided,
