I am really lost I cannot figure out which formula to use for this problem... Question:The landscaper that maintains Mrs. Jonesâ€™ lawn charges a flat fee of $30.00 for each job plus $10.00 per hour for labor.

a. Translate the problem situation into an algebraic equation using C for total cost and h for hours.

Starting next week, the landscaper is raising his hourly rate to $15.00 per hour but reducing his flat fee to $27.50.

b. Translate the new problem situation into an algebraic equation using C for total cost and h for hours.

I am stumped all I could figure out through my reading was this: 30+10d=c
