Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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.
