    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. Andrew earned $330 in 1 week. How many hours (regular plus overtime) did he work?

    The question 330 = 6x + 9y Solving this can go two ways, either for 'x' or for 'y' ~

    @haloqueenB258 You are correct. Since 40 hours at $6 per hour means $240, then the equation is simply 9y + 240 = 330, where y = the number of hours of overtime. Solve the equation above for y, then add the answer to 40 to find the total number of hours he worked.
