I put 32😱. This is because I worked out that she earned £40 in Saturday took that away from £180 which left me with £140 then divided it by 5 because there are 5 days in Monday to Friday. Would I get any marks for this?

I put 20 hours because she earnt £40 on Saturday so £180-40 is £140

The divided 140 by 7 = 20 so she worked 20 during the week. I'm prob so wrong

Not that's somewhat right. Ik for a fact that I have gained some marks for that question even though I put the wrong answer, what do you think?

But i think you may have forgotten the 4 hours she worked on Saturday and earned 10 pounds per hour so you forgot to add on the 4 hours but idk i may be wrong myself
20. 24 hours is the correct answer
