Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to figure the difference in time, calculate the number of hours she would have to work at each rate and subtract the two. $500=X1 Hours * $6.25/hour $500=X2 hours * $7.00/hour by figuring hours as your units, and multiplying by a value with the units $/hour, the hours cancel out and you should get $. You can take these equations and divide both sides by the $/Hour number to get the following equation: $500/(6.25 $/hour) = X1 hours Hope this helps.
