Suggested Answer: D 🗳️
Answer option D is correct.
Beth will earn seven hours of overtime pay at $16.175 per hour, plus her regular 40 hours of pay of $698.
Answer option A is incorrect. $820.15 does not reflect Beth's overtime for the week.
Answer option B is incorrect. $698 doesn't include the overtime pay.
Answer option C is incorrect. $1,230.22 counts all of the hours Beth has worked as overtime pay.

There is a typo. Beth's regular rate is $17.45/ hour, so her seven hours of overtime pay at $26.175 per hour, not $16.175.
