Drey makes $10 an hour plus $15 an hour for every hour of overtime. Overtime hours are any hours more than 40 hours for the week. On one week, Drey earned $490. How many hours (regular plus overtime) did he work during that week? Show your work.

$10 x 40 hours = $400 what Drey earned in regular pay.

$490 - $400 = $90 what Drey earned in overtime.

$90 / $15 = 6 hours that Drey worked in overtime.

40 + 6 = 46 hours that Drey worked in 1 week, regular + overtime hours.
