On the remaining days, James works 40 hours as it has been given he works 10 hours on Monday.
The rates on all the other days are $5.5 and rate on Monday is \($11(2*5.5)\)

Therefore, James's total earnings for the week is \(40*5.5 + 10*11 = 220 + 110 = 330\)(Option B)

James earns $5.50 per hour on days other than Mondays and twice that rate on Mondays. If James worked 50 hours last week including 10 hours on Monday, what were his earnings for the week?

=> Earnings on days except Monday = $5.5 / hour
=> Earning on Mondays = 2* earning on remaining days = 2*5.5 = $11/ hour

James worked = 50 hours = 40 hours + 10 hours on Monday
Earnings = 40 * salary of remaining week + 10* Monday salary = 40 * 5.5 + 10* 11 = 330

Answer: B

Amount earned on every day but Monday = $5.5
Amount earned on Monday = 2 * 5.5 = $11

Total hours worked = 50 hrs
Hours worked on Monday = 10 hrs

Total amount earned = 10*11 + (50-10)*5.5 = $330

James earns $5.5 on all other days except Monday .

On Monday he earns $11(2*5.5)

Total working hours :50
10 on Monday which means 10*11=110
40 on rest of the days which means 40*5.5=220

Total amount earned=110+220=330

B.

Since James earns twice his regular rate of $5.50 on Monday, he earns $11 per hour on Monday. Since he worked 10 hours on Monday and 40 hours on days other than Monday, he earned:

10 x 11 + 40 x 5.5 = 110 + 220 = 330 dollars

Answer: B
