Lana makes $8 an hour plus $12 an hour for every hour of overtime. Overtime hours are any hours more than 40 hours for the week.
Part A: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, W, for working x hours in a week when there is no overtime. (3 points)
Part B: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, S, for working y hours of overtime. Hint: Remember to include in the equation the amount earned from working 40 hours. (3 points)
Part C: Lana earned $368 in 1 week. How many hours (regular plus overtime) did she work? (4 points)

- studio-games

Ok so I dont seee it so here.
Part A: She works for x hrs (we are ignoring the given hours for now) a week, right? She also earns $8 an hour. You are looking for w, so it's going to be w = what?

- anonymous

8

- studio-games

Good

- studio-games

Part B: So, we are looking for how much she earns (now represented by "S," don't let that confuse you, we are just changing the variable) PLUS hours working overtime (represented by y). It says to not forget how much she earns for working her regular hours. To find that amount, solve the FIRST equation we made for 40 hrs. Just plug in 40 where "x" is and find the answer.

- anonymous

i don't know how to

- anonymous

wait what equation the x=8?

- studio-games

Ok let me see.
So we need to know what she earns

- studio-games

Represented by S

- anonymous

ok

- studio-games

Plus the hours she is working.

- studio-games

In overtime.

- anonymous

yeah

It says to not forget how much she earns for working her regular hours. To find that amount, solve the FIRST equation we made for 40 hrs. Just plug in 40 where "x" is and find the answer.

- anonymous

so what would be the equation then

- anonymous

?

- anonymous

can you just give me the answer with an explanation

- studio-games

So lets work together on it then.

- anonymous

ok

- studio-games

Ok give me a second.

- studio-games

Internet is VERY slow for some reason.

- anonymous

k

- studio-games

w=8(40) = 320
Now for S = ?

- anonymous

not sure

- anonymous

just tell me what part a part b and part c are then we discuss it please

- studio-games

Ok

- studio-games

let me write it down then

- anonymous

ok

- studio-games

Part A: W=8x where x equals amount of hours, and W equals wages.
Part B: S=8x+12(y) where y equals overtime hours and S equals wages
Part C: 368=8(40)+12(y)
-320=12(y)
48=12y
48/12=y
4=y
x=40, y=4.
X+Y=44 hours

- studio-games

There enjoy.

- anonymous

ok is there anyway we can communicate like by kick or something?

- anonymous

and i have one last question

- anonymous

Solve: negative 1 over 2 x + 3 = –x + 7

- studio-games

I have Skype and google hangouts.

- studio-games

Ok solving it.

- studio-games

MInd medaling and fanning me please?

- studio-games

X = 8

- studio-games
