Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good choices, so we have Natalia worked 3.5 more hours than lisa which we can represent as L = h+3.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No look at what I said, that should be N = h+3.5, so we have Lisa = h, total = 18 Our equation will be h+N=18 if we substitute N for h+3.5 we have h+(h+3.5)=18
