**bobpursley**, Thursday, September 1, 2011 at 7:08pmSo essentially he worked 44 hrs. hourly rate= 660/44

pay= 40*h+ (42-40)*2h is another way.

660=h(40+84-80)

660=h*44

**Creative Teacher**, Thursday, September 1, 2011 at 7:30pmPutting it into an equation of what's known and what isn't.

We know his normal hours but not the pay. Let x be the missing number.

x=hourly pay

40x

we know he worked two extra hours at two times the rate.

2 times 2x

we know his wages with 2 times 2x

so put this together

40x + 4x=44x

divide 660 by 44 to solve for x

and you get 15.

Does that make sense?
