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.0I'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What about B it doesn't click in my head, maybe like S=15y + 40? or S=15(40) or what?

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0After, subtract that number from 490.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.010 x 40 = 400, 490400= 90

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct! Now take 90 and divide it by 15 to find out how many overtime hours he worked.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep. So he worked 40 hours, plus 6 more overtime hours. This means that Drey worked a total of 46 hours.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you also help me with this? negative 1 over 2 x + 2 = –x + 7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So like 1/2x + 2 = x+7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would i multiply each side by 2/1?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So like or negative 2/1

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 1 }{ 2x+2}=x+7\] Wait, is this what your equation looks like?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no like this \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+2=x+7\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah okay. Well first subtract 2 on both sides

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x=x + 5?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes @nathangroup Now you were correct, multiply both sides by the reciprocal of 1/2, which is 2/1

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then add 2x to both sides
