Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Your calculation in post # 999 is not right because you have just calculated it as a normal hourly rate.
The rate was supposed to be "time and a half".

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Hi Mandy. I'm sorry to hear that you were unwell, but glad that you are better. 2:30pm today is okay with me.
By the way just to remind you that you can either post here, or email any attempts to the recent exercises that you want marked.
Yes so we need to go through something on either ratio or the overtime pay thing I would think.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

£ 7.00 - hourly rate
35 hours - normal full time hours
5 hours overtime
overtime paid at time and a quarter

Right above there I have copied the structure of an earlier question and given you some new numbers.
Can you see first of all how to work out the basic pay (without overtime) ?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

The "7x35" bit was certainly correct and what I was hoping for.
However it is not 49. Quite frankly I grabbed my calculator for that one, but it wouldn't hurt for you to try using a proper
multiplication:

35  x
  7

Yes that is correct. Right now can you see how to calculate JUST THE OVERTIME without any basic pay?

Right the clue is in the "time and a quarter" bit can you work out the overtime rate?

7 ÷ 4 = 1.75 + 7.00 = 8.75 x 5 = 43.75 am I right?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Very good. That is correct. Full marks.

Right now can you work out the gross pay: That is the basic pay plus overtime.

So 245 + 43.75 = 288.75 am I right?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Correct. Now let us try another example:

£ 7.50 - hourly rate
35 hours - normal full time hours
4 hours overtime
overtime paid at time and a third

Can you work out the basic pay?  Overtime ?  Total ?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Hi steveb. The hourly rate is 7.50 x 35 = 26.25
The overtime pay is 2.50 + 7.50 = 10.00 x 4 = 40.00
So the total is 40.00 + 26.25 = 66.25
Am I right?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

There is one minor error in that:

When you put  7.50 x 35 = .... the number you put was 26.25 and you have accidentally divided the answer by 10.
The actual answer for that bit was 262.50
Now can you give me an idea of how you actually did that bit of the calculation ?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Okay. I think you should do the final addition again with the basic pay of 262.50
The overtime bit of 40.00 was correct.
