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.0yep 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 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct! 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=?
