    1. w = nr

    2. His wage is £52.00

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1. Given that wages is a function of number of hours worked multiplied by hourly rate

    Where n represents hours and r represents rate.

    Wage formula is as follows;

    Wage (w) = hours (n) * rate (r)

    w = n * r

    w = nr

    2. If he worked 5 hours at a rate of £10.40 per hour

    This means

    n = 5

    r = 10.40

    His wage is as follows;

    w = nr

    w = 5 * £10.40

    w = £52.00

    Hence, his wage is £52.00
