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?

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

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

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

    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

    So subtract 400 from 490 and divide by 15 ?

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

  32. anonymous

    So it's 46 instead of 6
