    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.

    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
