For less than or equal to 8 hours --> payment=12X For more than 8 hours --> payment=96+(X-8)18 St 1 is suff.: Since the difference is 4 hours and payment 48, 48/4=12 which is the hourly rate for <=8. So, he worked 4 hours on monday and 8 hours on tuesday. ____________________ BUT, what if he didn't work at all on monday? So he might have worked only 4 hours on Tuesday. ____________________ St 2 is suff: the difference in payment is 48, so 48/3 = 16, which is more than hourly payment rate for <8 but less than that for 8<. So he must have worked more than 8 hours but less than 11 hours. Only 10 satisfies st.2. The answer is D. 06 May 2006, 00:36 Display posts from previous: Sort by # During each day last week, A person get paid at$12 each
