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
