    You need to deal with the two components of her income. She also has an hourly component of $8.50 per hour She has a fixed component of $60 income = hourly component + fixed component The fixed component is $60, so we can substitute that value in the equation above: income = hourly component + 60 To find the hourly component, think of how much she will earn by working h number of hours. In 1 hour, she earns 8.50 * 1 In 2 hours, she earns 8.50 * 2 In 3 hours, she earns 8.50 * 3 etc. In h hours she earns 8.50 * h, which is simply 8.50h. Her hourly component is 8.50h income = 8.50h + 60
