X will be used for the value of money she earned that week.

H represents the normal hours she worked.

D represents the number of days.

Y will represent the hours on the holiday.

Since she would be getting time and a half on the holiday, you would need to find how much time and a half pay would be first.

Time and a half = 5.50(1/2) + 5.50 = $8.25/hr for the day or holiday only.

X = 5.50(H)(D) + 8.25(Y)

Plug in your numbers

X = 5.50(7)(5) + 8.25(4)

X = 192.5 + 33

She made $225.5 that week.
