On Monday, I worked t-6 hours and earned 2t-5 dollars per hour. My friend Andrew worked 2t-9 hours but only earned t-5 dollars an hour. As it turns out, we earned the same amount. What is the value of t?

(t - 6) (2t - 5)  = (2t - 9) (t - 5)

 

2t^2 - 17t + 30 =   2t^2 - 19t + 45       simplify as

 

2t = 15

 

t = 7.5
