  1. $546.24
  2. $454
  3. $573.18
  4. $521.37

Answer: $573.18 is correct because $11.35 an hour x 40  hours a week equals $454. Time and a half pay for Lance would be $17.025 and you figure that out by multiplying $11.35 an hour by 1.5. Then multiply $17.025 times 7 overtime hours to get $119.175. Lastly, add $454 and $119.175 and you will get $573.175. Rounded to the hundredth place would be $573.18.
