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

Please walk me through this problem with an explanation

  1. Equation is wrong.

    Total earned/hourly earned = total hours/one hour

    x/$45 = 55/1
