The total earnings for one hour is equal to the sum of all the salaries.

total earnings = all the salaries added together

There are three groups of different leveled salaries. For each group, use this formula:

$\text{how many are in the group}\times \text{how much they make}$

There are 8 that make $8 an hour so:

$8\times 8=\$64}$

There are 3 that make $10 an hour:

$3\times 10=\$30}$

And there is 1 that makes $12 an hour:

$1\times 12=\$12}$

Each of the groups make 64, 30, and 12 dollars respectively. Remember, the total earnings is all the salaries added together. So add these three numbers together:

total earnings=64+30+12=106

The whole group made $106 in one hour.
