(02.02 HC)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?

Let's try it this way. If someone gave you a job and said you were getting $10 per hour and you worked 2 hours, how much would you expect to get paid?

- anonymous

$20

- anonymous

right. last one. I just want to show you the pattern. what about if you worked 5 hours?

- anonymous

$50 lol

- anonymous

great!

- anonymous

So how do I make an equation? ðŸ˜•

- anonymous

the problem defines W as wages and x as hours so
|dw:1435352811583:dw|

- anonymous

Lol can you type that I can't read it that well

- anonymous

That would be the first equation right ?

- anonymous

yes
W=10x

- anonymous

What would be the second one ?

- anonymous

HE has to work 40 hours before getting overtime. Use the first equation to find out how much that is

- anonymous

S=40x ??

- anonymous

looking for a number here. W = 40*10

- anonymous

50 ?

- anonymous

W = 40 times 10

- anonymous

Oh haha 400

- anonymous

My bad lol

- anonymous

for overtime hours he makes $15 per hour, but he only gets that after 40 hours. So the equation is S = 15y + 400

- anonymous

Thanks now part c lol

- anonymous

for part c you need to solve this equation for y
\[490=15y+400\]
y gives you the overtime hours.
after you find y add 40 to get the total hours

- anonymous

So subtract 400 from 490 and divide by 15 ?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

I got 6

- anonymous

Could you help me with two more questions ?

- anonymous

Please

- anonymous

It's - 1/2x+2=-x+7

- anonymous

6 is just the overtime hours. need to add 40.
total hrs = 46

- anonymous

So it's 46 instead of 6

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

Great thank you now can you help me with that problem up there ^^^^

- anonymous

Nvm I got it but thanks for your time and help ðŸ˜Š

- anonymous

I appreciate it
