In this equation or question: translate the following text into an equation involving ratios and solve it. " Anne is paid \$45 per hour, if she worked 55 hours in a particular week, how much will she be paid that week?
45/1 = x/55: cross multiply and solve for x.
45(x)= how much Anne earns= x=55

How does x = 55 to get 45(55) = \$2475
