    Answer:

    30.5 hours

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If he were to average 8 hours PER week for 4 weeks, his total sum would have been:

    8 * 4 = 32 hours

    But he fell short of it. By how much?

    By 1\frac{1}{2} hours!

    So, he practiced 1  1/2 hours LESS THAN 32 hours, so his practice time is:

    32-1\frac{1}{2}\\=32-1.5\\=30.5\\=30\frac{1}{2}

    So, he practiced 30.5 hours in the 4 weeks
