A DJ charges \$250 for 1 hour of work and charges \$410 for 3 hours of work. Write an equation that models this situation. Let "x" represent the number of hours worked and "y" represent the cost to hire the DJ.

Thank you for the help! I appreciate it.

He charges an extra \$160 for 2 hours, or \$80/hr after the first hour. So, for x hours (x>2),

y = 250 + 80x

Thank you so much, Steve!
