You might have to correct me if I'm wrong, but I think... In order to calculate overtime pay, you must take your amount earned per hour and multiply it by 1.5. In your case, Eric's overtime rate would be $13.86/hour ($9.24 x 1.5 = $13.86). For double time, take the amo...

Algebra
There really is no formula for this. All you must do is add 8 to both sides. What you do to one side, you must do to the other. w-8 = 9 w-8(+8) = 9(+8) The eights cancel out on this side. Now you are simply left with w = 17. Make sense?

Would my equation for the x-dir. be Vcos 55*T = 18, since it's the full length of the court? What would my height for the y-dir. be? Vsin 55*T - (g/2)T^2 = ???

Physics
Ok so I have the initial speed and the max height. Now it asks "At what initial speed must the ball be hit so that it lands directly on the opponent's back line?" Do I use a process similar to that of the first question?

Physics
Now it asks for the max. height. above the court reached by the ball. Do I use the equation Vf^2 = vi^2 + 2(g)(delta y) ?
