Please help me understand the problem you presented. Shaniqua earns $225 for 25 hours of work. How much money is she paid an hour? \[\frac{ Money Earned for 25 Hours Work}{ 25 hours }\] If she can save $25 per week, how much money is that after 15 weeks? ($25 per week)(15 weeks)= If she wants to save $600 how much more money will she need? $600 - ($25 per week)(15 weeks) How much extra money will she earn working 5 extra hours per week? How much working two hours extra per week?

I don't understand this problem at all. Or how to do it. I was handed a paper and told to solve it

Okay, the problem requires an understanding of algebra, variables and basic arithmetic. How much algebra have you studied? This is very introductory algebra.

If she makes a total of $225 in a week and works 25 hours to earn that, what is her pay rate or dollar/hours? It is just 225/25 = ? Can you do that part of the problem?
