Last week, Jane worked 40 hours of regular time and 8 hours of overtime. If she earns $11.50 per hour regularly and gets \(1\frac{1}{2}\)times that for overtime, how much did Jane earn last week?

I found the question confusing. If she earns $11.5 per hour in regular time then for working 40 hours she earns $460. If she earns 5.5 times $11.5 per hour in overtime then after after working 8 hours of working overtime, she earns $506. So in total she earns $460 + $506 = $966.

Where am I being wrong in understanding the question?
