I do not understand This:


Employee x is paid $12.50 an hour for the first 36 hours he works in a week, and is paid double that rate for every hour over that. Employee Y is paid $15.00 an hour for the first 40 hours she works in a week, and is paid 1.5 times that rate for every hour over that. On a certain week, both employees worked the same # of hours and were paid the same amount. How many hours did each employee work that week?


The book says I have to Backsolve. What does Backsolve mean? How do I solve this problem?????
