I'm stuck on this:

 

Maya is working two summer jobs, making $7 per hour babysitting and $11 per hour landscaping. Last week Maya earned a total of $96 and worked 3 times as many hours babysitting as she worked hours landscaping. Determine the number of hours Maya worked babysitting last week and the number of hours she worked landscaping last week.

landscaping hours = x                           money from landscaping = 11x

b = babysitting hours = 3x                       money from babysitting =   7(3x)        money summed = 96

 

11x            +          7(3x)           = 96      solve for 'x' the landscaping hours....then b = 3x
