Juan charges $3.50 per hour for babysitting. Write a rule to describe the amount of money (M) earned is a function of the number of hours (h) spent baby-sitting. HELP PLEASE

    3.5h = M

    from this, how do you figure out how long it would take him to make 15 dollars?

  • Algebra - , Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at 6:10pm

    3.5h = 15

    Solve for h

  • Algebra - , Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at 6:10pm

    so would it be 15/3.5
    so 4 hours?

    It would take more than 4 hours.

    After four hours he'd only have $14.00.

    then what do you do to get the answer?

  • Algebra - , Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at 6:30pm

    Divide 15 by 3.5

    but that's what i did and you said it was wrong

  • Algebra - , Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at 6:45pm

    15 / 3.5 = 4.28571429

    You forgot the decimal places. It would take Juan about 4.3 hours or 4 hours and 18 minutes to earn $15.00.
