7-10.

Adam earns $36 for every four hours of work. If he continues to be paid at the same rate:

How long will it take him to earn $144? Show and explain your reasoning.

How long will it take him to earn $222? Show and explain your reasoning.

How could you describe his rate for a 40-hour work week? For an 8-hour day? Show and explain your reasoning.

$144 ÷ $36 = 4 sets of 4 hours each

16 hours

$222 ÷ $36 = how many sets of 4 hours each?

How many sets of 4 hours are there in 40 hours? 8 hours?

If Adam makes $36 for every 4 hours, how much does this total?

$360 for a 40-hour week, $72 for an 8-hour day.
