The job paid $25 for every 2 hours of work. Write an equation that represents how much the job pays, y, for x hours of work.

1 Answer

  • We know that we can use y for "how much the job pays" and x for "hours of work."

    Let's find how much the job pays in 1 hour by dividing.

    25 / 2 = $12.5 per hour

    We can mulitply x to 12.5 because this shows how much he earned.

    An equation will look like 12.5x = y

    Best of Luck!
