I am assuming he worked 37½ in one week.
Assuming he worked 5½ each day from Monday to Friday, that's 27 work hours.
37½ - 27 = 10½
10½ - 4½ = 6
On Sunday he worked 6 hours and on Saturday he worked 10½ hours.
There's too much ambiguity in your question.

I am trying to guess what the original form of the question might have been.
He worked a total of 37½ hrs from Monday to Friday, (average 7½ per day)
He worked an extra 5½ hrs overtime on one week
He worked 4½ more hrs on Saturday than he did on Sunday
How many hours did he work all together ?
Let s be the number of hours he worked on Sunday
That means he worked s + 4½ hrs on Saturday
Total hours add up as 37½ + 4½ + 2s = 42 + 2s
If he worked say 2 hours on Sunday, total would be 42 + 4 = 46 hours.
This may not be quite what you meant, but it shows a method.

Have you actually read your questions with its lack of punctuation? It makes no sense.
He "worked 5½ hrs in one week" and he "worked 37½ hrs from mon-fri". These two statements contradict each other unless he did negative work on Saturday and Sunday.
Let H be the hours worked on Sunday.
37.5 + (H + 4.5) + H = 5.5
2H = 5.5 - 42 = -36.5
H = -18.25
He worked -18.25 hours on Sunday and -13.75 hours on Saturday. What was he doing? Destroying the work he had done between Monday to Friday?

Numbers don't add up. How can he work only 5½ hrs in a week if he worked 37½ hrs mon thru friday?
yes, and add punctuation please.
