    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.
