### HideShow timer Statistics

An employee is paid 1.5 times the regular hourly rate
for each hour worked in excess of 40 hours per week,
excluding Sunday, and 2 times the regular hourly rate
for each hour worked on Sunday. How much was the
employee paid last week?

(1) The employee’s regular hourly rate is \$10.
(2) Last week the employee worked a total of
54 hours but did not work more than 8 hours
on any day.

I have a doubt when you combine both statments. please can some clarify.

C is sufficient
Total pay = 10*40 + 1.5*10*8+ 2 * 10 * 6

But I think there is a trap since we don't know how many hrs he worked on Sat. So the pay will change. Hence the answer may be E

The answer is E, as the break-up for the weekdays and Saturday + Sunday is not known.

It could be 5 * 8 + 6 (Sat) + 8 (Sun)

It could be 5 * 8 + 7 (Sat) + 7 (Sun)

Thanks ..subhash ....thinking about it late in the evening that

54-40 = 14 hours. These 14 could be worked like 8+6 or 6+8 or any other combination.

Because we don't know exact Saturday/Sunday hours.
