Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0h is the variable we chose above to represent the number of hours Tiya worked. For working 1 hour, Tiya earns 7 * 1 For working 2 hours, Tiya earns 7 * 2 For working 3 hours, Tiya earns 7 * 3 For working 4 hours, Tiya earns 7 * 4 etc. For working h hours, Tiya earns _______

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes you are correct, but you can't name every different number of hours she works, so we need a general expression to show how much she earns. We use the variable h to represent the number of hours. We have seen that when you multiply 7 by the number of hours, you have what she earned. If she works h hours, she earns 7 times h. 7 times h = 7 * h = 7h

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This means the answer to Part C. is s = 7h

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats it just s = 7h

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember from part A. s = salary and h = number of hours Tiya worked. s = 7h means that the amount of money Tiya earns is always 7 times the number of hours she works.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. Part C. is simply: s = 7h
