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

• Algebra -

3.5h = M

• Algebra -

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

• Algebra -

3.5h = 15

Solve for h

• Algebra -

so would it be 15/3.5
so 4 hours?

• Algebra -

It would take more than 4 hours.

After four hours he'd only have \$14.00.

• Algebra -

then what do you do to get the answer?

• Algebra -

Divide 15 by 3.5

• Algebra -

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

• Algebra -

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.
