Gary earns $12 an hour plus $16 an hour for every hour of overtime. Overtime hours are any hours more than 30 hours for the week. Part A: Create an equation that shows the amount of money earned, M, 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, T, for working y hours of overtime. Hint: Remember to include in the equation the amount earned from working 30 hours. (3 points) Part C: Gary earned $408 in 1 week. How many hours (regular plus overtime) did he work? Show your work. (4 points)

for part a, if you wanted to find the money earned, you would simply multiply hourly wage * number of hours what does that look like, using the numbers/values from the problem?

Vocaloid:

same concept number of hours * overtime hourly wage

4 days ago
cookiemonster:

Amount of wages earned = Regular rate per hour * Maximum number of regular working hours + Overtime rate per hour * Excess working hours T = 12 * 30 + 16 * y T = 360 + 16 y or T = 16 y + 360

Vocaloid:

so if my overtime hourly wage is 25$ per hour and I work z hours, how would I find my overtime pay?

4 days ago
Vocaloid:

*z hours overtime

cookiemonster:

Given T = 408, find y: 408 = 16 y + 360 y = 3 hrs Therefore the total hours Gary worked that week is, x + y = 30 + 3 = 33 hrs (x = 30 since that is the maximum limit for regular working hours)
