Two mechanics worked on a car. The first mechanic worked for 20 hours, and the second mechanic worked for 5 hours. Together they charged a total of $1725 . What was the rate charged per hour by each mechanic if the sum of the two rates was $120 per hour? Note that the ALEKS graphing calculator can be used to make computations easier
