    5x = 330 to get x by itself you divide by 5 5x = 330 -- ---- 5 5 the 5's cancel and you get x = 66 (330/5)

    Thom worked 18 hours last week at the sporting goods store and earned $92.00. If he continues to earn the same hourly pay, how many additional hours must he work to earn another $138.00?
