On Monday, I worked hours t-6 and earned 2t-5 dollars per hour. My friend Andrew worked 2t-8 hours but only earned t-5 dollars an hour. As it turns out, we earned the same amount. What is the value of t?
Hours worked * $hr = $ is equal for both of you.....
(t-6)(2t-5) = (2t-8)(t-5) Expand
2t^2 -5t-12t+30 = 2t^2 -10t-8t+40 Simplify
