Question:

A truck driver makes $0.10 for every mile he drives. The truck driver is also paid $8.00 per hour. If he drives 200 miles in 4 hours, how much does he earn, total?

A $52
Explaination

First, figure out how much the driver makes for his mileage: $0.10 × 200 miles = $20. Then calculate 4 × $8.00 to figure his hourly wages, which equals $32. $20 + $32 = $52.
