Algebra

Mary earns $16 an hour plus $20 an hour for every hour of overtime. Overtime hours are any hours more than 30 hours for the week.

Part A: Create an equation that shows the amount of money earned, M, for working x hours in a week when there is no overtime.

Part B: Create an equation that shows the amount of wages earned, T, for working y hours of overtime. Hint: Remember to include in the equation the amount earned from working 30 hours.

Part C: Mary earned $580 in 1 week. How many hours (regular plus overtime) did she work? Show your work.
Is this the way it's solved?
Part A: M= 16x
Part B: T= 20x + 480
Part C: 580= 20 x 480
100= 20x
x=5

  2. A:
    M = 16 x

    B:
    T = 16*30 + 20 y (y,not x, is overtime hours)

    C:
    580 = 16*30 + 20 y
    580 = 480 + 20 y
    y = 100/20 = 5 hours over 30
    so 35 hours total
