Rita's pay for Monday is \$158.

Step-by-step explanation:

Rita's hourly pay for an 8-hour shift she works everyday is, \$16.

If she works overtime she gets paid 1.5 times her hourly pay for every extra hour.

That is, if she works (8 + x) hours a day then the pay for the x hour is, 1.5x.

Rita's working hours on Monday is:

Started from 8:15 AM to 12:45 PM ⇒ 4 hours 30 minutes. 45 minutes lunch break ⇒ 12:45 PM + 45 minutes = 1:30 PM Worked from 1:30 PM to 6:15 PM ⇒ 4 hours 45 minutes

It is provided that Rita does not get paid for lunch hour.

Rita's pay for Monday is computed as follows:

= (8:15 AM - 12:45 PM) + (1:30 PM - 6:15 PM)

= (4 hours 30 minutes) + (4 hours 30 minutes)

= (4 + 4) hours + (30 + 45) minutes

= (8 * 16) + (75 minutes * 16 * 1.5)

= 128 + (1.25 hours * 24)

= 128 + 30

= 158

Thus, Rita's pay for Monday is \$158.
