Maya works 16 hours per month at her part-time job earning $6.75 per hour. She earns some additional money house sitting for neighbors and friends. Maya charges $30 per day to house sit if there are no pets. If the house sitting includes pets, then she charges $40 per day. Last month, Maya spent 3 days house sitting with no pets and 5 days house sitting with pets. What is the total amount of earnings Maya had for the month? a. $270b. $290c. $378d. $398

From the informations provided within the question, we know that:
Maya works for 16 hours at the rate of $6.75 per hour.
Maya worked for 3 days in a house sitting without pets for $30 per hour.
Maya also worked for 5 days in a house sitting with pets for $40 per hour.
Now we have to find out the total income maya made during the month.
Firstly
Income from per time job for the month = (16 * 6.75) dollars
                                                                = 108 dollars
Income from house sitting without pets for the month = ( 3 * 30) dollars
                                                                                     = 90 dollars
Income from house sitting with pets for the month = ( 5 * 40) dollars
                                                                                 = 200 dollars
So the total income made by Maya in the month = (108 + 90 + 200) dollars
                                                                               = 398 dollars
So the correct option for this question is option "d".
