    Please help I need to solve this: My Base pay is a 31.44 Overtime is 1.5 (base pay) =

    I came across my paystub and brought this up to my supervisor.
    My Base pay is a 31.44
    Overtime is 1.5 (base pay) = $47.16 ( should be*)

    now the way it’s calculated on my pay stub is

    Regular hours. - 18 ($31.44) = $754.55
    Overtime - 18 ($31.44) = $565.91
    ”OvertimePremium” - 18($42.20) (.5)= $379.82
    Double time - 6($31.44)(2)= $377.38

    this where I saw a problem if they are already paying 18$ @ $31.44
    The overtime premium should be paid @ $18(47.16)(.5) correct ?
    31.44(1.5) 47.16 hence 1.5(base)

    Yet when I simply add 18(31.44)(1.5)= $848.88

    but when you separate the whole from the half and add them together

    18(31.44). =565.91
    18(31.44)(.5)=379.82
    =945.73

    which would appear they are over paying me at a lesser rate of $42.20 instead of $47.16 Somethings not adding up and there has to be an explanation please help anyone !!!

    Well, until you fix this:

    Regular hours. - 18 ($31.44) = $754.55
    Overtime - 18 ($31.44) = $565.91

    You're not going to get anywhere.

    How do you multiply the same two values and get different results.
    Do you REALLY get overtime after only 24 hours?

    31.44(1.5)= 47.16; hence 1.5(base)

    Yet when I simply add 18(31.44)(1.5)= $848.88

    but when you separate the whole from the half and add them together

    18(31.44). =565.91
    18(31.44)(.5)=282.96
    =848.88

    no, the premium is 18($31.44)(.5)=$282.96; not $379.82,
    the premium is how much is added to your regular pay for those hours.

    you get the same answer either way
    18 ($31.44) = $565.91
    18 ($47.16)=$848.88 [your overtime pay=$47.16 ]
    total=$1414.79

    or/
    18 ($31.44) = $565.91
    18 ($31.44)+0.5(18)($31.44)=$848.88 [your overtime pay is $31.44 + (0.5)$31.44]
    total=$1414.79
