Unpaid lunch reduces the daily hours by 30 mins so you are paid for 8 hours’ work. I assume the breaks are paid for, so they would be included in the hourly pay. That means 1725/8=215.63 approx is the hourly rate. If the breaks are not included in the pay, the 8 hours is reduced by 20 mins, so 8-⅓=7⅔=23/3 hours is paid for and the hourly rate is 1725÷23/3=1725×3/23=225. I expect this is the answer required.
