HELP PLEASE !
(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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for overtime hours he makes $15 per hour, but he only gets that after 40 hours. So the equation is S = 15y + 400

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