22. To grow grass in Mel Smith's yard, a landscaper estimates that he will need 55 pounds of grass seed. Each pound will cost Mel $1.83. The landscaper will also charge Mel 6 hours of labor at $12.50 per hour. If Mel pays early, he will be entitled to a cash discount of $3.50. Assuming Mel takes advantage of the discount, how much does he pay the landscaper? (Points : 1)

    Is this discount $3.50 flat or $3.50 per hour?

    is the discount a discounted price per hour? if not then the answer is this \[55(1.83)+6(12.50)-3.50=172.1\]

    55(1.83) +6(12.5) -3.5 = $172.15
