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?

If Drey worked 10 hours in a certain week, how much would he make? If he worked 40 in a certain week how much would he make?

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
  • anonymous
$20
anonymous
  • anonymous
right. last one. I just want to show you the pattern. what about if you worked 5 hours?
anonymous
  • anonymous
$50 lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
great!
anonymous
  • anonymous
So how do I make an equation? 😕
anonymous
  • anonymous
the problem defines W as wages and x as hours so |dw:1435352811583:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
Lol can you type that I can't read it that well
anonymous
  • anonymous
That would be the first equation right ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes W=10x
anonymous
  • anonymous
What would be the second one ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
HE has to work 40 hours before getting overtime. Use the first equation to find out how much that is
anonymous
  • anonymous
S=40x ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
looking for a number here. W = 40*10
anonymous
  • anonymous
50 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
W = 40 times 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh haha 400
anonymous
  • anonymous
My bad lol
anonymous
  • 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
  • anonymous
Thanks now part c lol
anonymous
  • 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
  • anonymous
So subtract 400 from 490 and divide by 15 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
Could you help me with two more questions ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Please
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's - 1/2x+2=-x+7
anonymous
  • anonymous
6 is just the overtime hours. need to add 40. total hrs = 46
anonymous
  • anonymous
So it's 46 instead of 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
Great thank you now can you help me with that problem up there ^^^^
anonymous
  • anonymous
Nvm I got it but thanks for your time and help 😊
anonymous
  • anonymous
I appreciate it
