Answer:

Kate's hourly wage is $11 per hour.

Explanation:

The formula for pay rate is:

#r = e/t# where #r# is the pay rate, #e# is total amount earned and #t# is the time worked.

In this problem we are given the total amount earned and the time worked which we can substitute into the formula and then determine Kate's pay rate:

#r = ($396)/(36 hours)#

#r = ($11)/(hour)#
