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?

just add the numbers 10 15 and subtrack 40
anonymous
  • anonymous
But it needs an equation for PArt A
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh...
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
just what is aid will solve all of them think bout it
anonymous
  • anonymous
Maybe 10x + 15w = 40?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wait a second what i said is wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh right i forgot something xD
anonymous
  • anonymous
W = Wages earned, x=amount of hours a week without overtime
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah u put them in the wrong order
anonymous
  • anonymous
10x + 15(40) = W?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can someone help please???
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'll try my best to! Ok so in A we're trying to find the amount of wages earned, W. So we put this at the beginning of the equation. W= Next, we find out that we are working x hours in a week. We already know we make $10 an hour, so add 10x to the equation. W=10x Since there is no overtime, our first equation is finished. Simply W=10x

  • anonymous
Does this make sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
What about B it doesn't click in my head, maybe like S=15y + 40? or S=15(40) or what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You're very close. Now they tell us we worked 40 hours, so let's include that first. We still make $10 an hour so multiply that by 40. S= 10(40) And here's where you add the 15y S=10(40)+15y.

And for C, first calculate the maximum amount of money that could be made (without overtime) in a week. To find this, do 10 x 40
anonymous
  • anonymous
After, subtract that number from 490.
anonymous
  • anonymous
10 x 40 = 400, 490-400= 90
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct! Now take 90 and divide it by 15 to find out how many overtime hours he worked.
anonymous
  • anonymous
6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep. So he worked 40 hours, plus 6 more overtime hours. This means that Drey worked a total of 46 hours.

Thank you. Is there a way I can give u a reward or medal?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can you also help me with this? negative 1 over 2 x + 2 = –x + 7
anonymous
  • anonymous
You can click on my profile and click the become a fan button, or click on the best response next to my name for a medal if you wish :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
And sure
anonymous
  • anonymous
So like -1/2x + 2 = -x+7
anonymous
  • anonymous
would i multiply each side by 2/1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So like or negative 2/1
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{ -1 }{ 2x+2}=-x+7\] Wait, is this what your equation looks like?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no like this \[-\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+2=-x+7\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ah okay. Well first subtract 2 on both sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay so \[-\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x=-x + 5?\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes @nathangroup Now you were correct, multiply both sides by the reciprocal of -1/2, which is 2/1
anonymous
  • anonymous
So -x=-2x + 10?
anonymous
  • anonymous
then add 2x to both sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
x = 10?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yay!!!! Thank you!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Anytime :)

I fanned you :D
