**DrBob222**, Sunday, May 29, 2011 at 12:04amLet x = hourly rate and

1.5x = overtime rate.

--------------------

40*x + 13*1.5x = 833

Solve for x.

**Jaya**, Sunday, May 29, 2011 at 4:12am40(x)+13(1.5x)=833

=40x+20x=833

=60x=833

x needs to be isolated, so divide 60 from 833

x=833/60

x=14

hourly rate =$14.00

overtime rate=1.5(14)=$21.00
