Lets start with part c he made $490 in a week Divide that by ten then show me what u get.
yep now he can only work 40 hours with making ten dollars. so we know that he worked 40 hours for sure. now for part a they want to know how much money he made earning 10 dollars an hour without going over time. do what is 40 * 10 = ?
Great Job! so our equation for part A would be $10 * 40 = $400 correct?
do you agree^^^
making sense so far?
ok awesome! now for part B they want you to create an equation for the amount he worked overtime. Now Do you remember how many hours a week he can work without going over time?
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=?
