8.6 and 10.1?
Let x = the amount of money Ben makes per hour Let y = the amount of money Shane makes per hour So we know that together they make $182.00. That would look like this: x+y = 182 We also know that Shane makes $1.50 more than Ben, each hour, therefore: y=x+1.50 Now that you've got 2 equations, can you take it from there?
you forgot to add the amount of hours they work?
Oh! You're right! Look at that! :) My bad!
So the first equation I wrote : x+y=182 It should instead be: 9x+8y=182 I'm sorry about that.
so that would be 8x+9y=182 and x+1.50=y
awesome! thanks you soo much
i feel so dumb, i don't know how to do these problems anymore -_-
That's right! :) Good! You're Welcome!!
your not dumb, you are just simply expanding your knowledge. like me.
Yeah, don't feel bad. I do these all day and even I messed that one up. :)
wait so what's the ansewr? for my peace of mind
