Shelia=x hours Glenn=y hours we know x+y = 55 13.50 x and 12y taking the number of hours times amount per hour will equal 705 so are system of equations are x+y = 55 13.50x + 12y = 705
Can you explain that to me a bit more please
ok you probably are having trouble solving the system of equations right??
My problem is, I dont understand how the problem is supposed to be set up so I can figure out the question
ok multiply x+y=55 times -12 -12(x+y=55) -12x -12y = -660 and add to the next equation 13.50x + 12y = 705 ____________________________ 1.50x = 45 divide both sides by 1.50 x= 30 this is sheila's hours worked what is Glen's
do you understand all the steps
ok i looked at the total number of hours worked 55 and i assigned a x to sheila and y to glen and then formed an equation x+y = 55 so far so good
Alright I'm understanding that part now
all right next if you take the number of hours a person worked and multiply it by the amount they get paid per hour that is their total amount paid. but here we have two people so we add their amounts together remember sheila is x and glen is y so we have to multiply their no hours worked by what there hourly rate is sheila 13.50 * x glen 12 * y this will equal the total amount 705 dollars here is the second equation 13.50x + 12 y = 705 dollars
ok with that??
Yes!!! Thank you very much!
