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)

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?

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.

k
studio-games
  • studio-games
w=8(40) = 320 Now for S = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
not sure
anonymous
  • anonymous
just tell me what part a part b and part c are then we discuss it please
studio-games
  • studio-games
Ok
studio-games
  • studio-games
let me write it down then
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
studio-games
  • 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
