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?

Great Job! so our equation for part A would be $10 * 40 = $400 correct?

any hours more than 40 hours a week

Correct! and we already figured out he worked 49 hours this week. so that means he worked 9 hour overtime. and he makes $15 an hour over time so what is 15*9=?
