A:

1. He worked 10 hours + 15 hours = 25 hours

He earned $280 for 25 hours of work.

The rate per hour is $280/25 hours = $11.20/hour

2. You need to find 6% of $32,345.

To change the percent into a decimal, move the decimal point two places tot he left.

6% of $32,345 = 6% * $32,345 = 0.06 * $32,345 = $1,940.70
