Warner 8 6 11 7 12 0 4 $7.25 ____ _____ _____ _____ ______

To determine

To calculate: The total hours, overtime hours, regular pay, overtime pay and total pay of Warner when hourly rate is $7.25 and number of hours per day he worked from Monday to Sunday are as 8, 6, 11, 7, 12, 0, 4 respectively. If Warner works for more than 40 hours company pays for his overtime at the rate of time-and-a-half.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided number of hours per day Warner worked per day from Monday to Sunday are as 8, 6, 11, 7, 12, 0, 4 respectively and hourly rate is $7.25.

Formula used:

To calculate gross pay by hourly wages:

Step 1: Calculate employee’s regular gross pay for 40 or less hours of work.

Regular pay=Hourly rate×Regular hours worked

Step 2: Calculate employee’s overtime pay by multiplying hourly rate to overtime factor and to number of overtime hours.

Overtime pay=Hourly rate×Overtime factor×Overtime hours worked

Step 3: Calculate total gross pay.

Total gross pay=Regular pay+Overtime pay

Calculation:

First find total number of hours Warner worked in a week by adding number of hours he worked on each day from Monday to Sunday which are 8, 6, 11, 7, 12, 0, 4.

8+6+11+7+12+0+4=48

So total number of hours Warner worked in a week is 48.

Now number of overtime hours he worked can be found by subtracting 40 hours from the total number of hours.

Number of overtime hours = 4840=8

Now to calculate regular gross pay for 40 hours of work, consider hourly rate as $7
