Drey makes $10 an hour plus $15 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.
Part B: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, S, for working y hours of overtime. Hint: Remember to include in the equation the amount earned from working 40 hours.
Part C: Drey earned $490 in 1 week. How many hours (regular plus overtime) did he work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can construct an equation: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, W, for working x hours in a week when there is no overtime. \[W = 10x + 15o\] Where is \(x\) is hours worked, and \(o\) is overtime. Since not overtime exist we can drop that part off.\[W = 10x\] is the equation for Part A. Understand how we did that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i follow wages is the variable and 10 is per hour 15 is over time but we dont need it yet so w is now wages = 10x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0* without overtime. Remember we are not accounting for overtime since the question says no overtime is worked.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay try to attempt: Part B: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, S, for working y hours of overtime. Hint: Remember to include in the equation the amount earned from working 40 hours. And show me your attempt.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Overtime is any hours over hour 40. So \(40 \times 10 = 400\). We still need to calculate the overtime which is $15 per hour. \(15 \times 6 = 90\) So \(40 + 6 = 46 hours\).
