time and a half is the standard overtime pay in the US. If you make X dollars and hour, then time and a half would be 1.5X.

In this case he's making $10/hr, time and a half would be 1.5*10 = $15/hr.

He works 14 hours 15 minutes between 8:15 and 10:30. That's 8 hours at $10/hr and 6.25 hours at $15/hr.

(8*10)+(6.25*15)= 80+(62.5+31.25)=80+93.75=$173.75
