Lee worked 22 hours this week and made \$132. If she works 15 hours next week at the same pay rate, how much will she make?

• Word problem math -

Set up a proportion and cross multiply.

22/132 = 15/x

• Word problem math -

ok that is the equation that I had got as well but how do I cross multiply?

• Word problem math -

Multiply the first and last terms together. Then multiply the middle two terms together.

22/132 = 15/x
22x = 132 * 15
22x = 1980
x = 90

You could also find her hourly wage for the 22-hour week and apply it to her 15-hour week.
