Jack is paid time-and-a-half for hours worked in excess than 40 hours and double-time for hours worked on Sunday. If Jack had a gross weekly wages of $456 for 50 hours, 4 of which were on Sunday, what is his regular hourly rate?

Jack works 40 regular hours at a regular rate.

He work 10 hours over 40.

Of the 10 hours of overtime work, 6 hours at 1.5x per hour and 4 of the 10 hours, he made double-time or 2x.

My set up:

40x + 6(1.5x) + 4(2x) = 456

Is this the correct equation?

Thanks. I have decided to randomly select questions as my way to stay in touch with mathematics. My questions will range from prealgebra through precalculus. I will need your help with calculus questions.

I look forward to your help with Calculus l, ll, and lll. Calculus will be a textbook study. There's no way I can jump from chapter to chapter and topic to topic if I never took Calculus before.
