6-75.

. Jeanine earns $5.00 an hour babysitting her neighbor's three children. Homework Help ✎

How much will Jeanine earn if she starts at 7:30 p.m. and ends at 12:30 a.m.?

How much will she earn if she starts at 10:30 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m.?

On another day, Jeanine earned $37.50. How many hours did she work?

How many hours did Jeanine work? $5.00 ( number of hours ) = total earnings

Jeanine worked 3.5 hours.

Can you do this in your head? $2.50 is half of $5.00. $35.00 is $2.50 less than $37.50.
