1. 20+10x >= 250
but that's only if he works all in one stretch.

Since he works day by day (presumably for 8 hours per day, but you don't say), each day he gets

20 + 7*10 = \$90
So, to make \$250, he needs to work 3 days, making \$270. That would be 24 hours.

If he worked 4-hour days, that'd be %50/day, and he'd only have to work 5 days, or 20 hours.

3. why do you want 20 as the answer? In any case, think about it. He makes \$50 for a 4-hour day. So, if he works d days, what do you need?
