    Answer:

    $285

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Since the wages vary directly with the time, then use a direct proportion.

    $150 is to 20 hours as x is to 38 hours

    150/20 = x/38

    15/2 = x/38

    2x = 15 * 38

    x = 15 * 19

    x = 285

    Give our first 2 numbers we know her wage is $7.50, so if we multiply that by the projected hours we get a total of $285
