Andrew makes $6 an hour plus $9 an hour for every hour of overtime. Overtime hours are any hours more than 40 hours for the week. Part A: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, W, for working x hours in a week when there is no overtime.
I think that it is 6x >40???
@jim_thompson5910 can you help?
they want an equation not an inequality
equations always have = signs in them
okay so I am trying to figure it out.. do I have the numbers correct?
Andrew makes $6 an hour x = number of hours so if he worked x hours, then he makes 6x dollars agreed?
sorry I was on the phone for a min
Part A: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, W, for working x hours in a week when there is no overtime.
it says "no overtime" so ignore the $9 part
ok so 6x=?
so W = 6x
W = amount earned
ok... If he worked full time, he worked for 40 hours?
because it says no overtime? I want to be sure that this is the right step towards the answer.... Thank you for being willing to help me.
sorry about that
for `Part A: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, W, for working x hours in a week when there is no overtime.` they just want W = 6x they don't want anything more
and yeah they say no overtime, so ignore that for now
