Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let x be the additional hours so the equation would be 5 + 2.75x = 29.75 subtract 5 from both sides 2.75x = 24.75 divide both sides by 2.75 x = 9 however, x is just the additional hour. the car was parked an hour before that so add 1 x + 1 = 10 hours
