Hi there!

I have some math problems, please help!

1) Table 3 shows the rates charged for renting a hall.

Basic payment | RM100 |

Rental fee | RM15 per hour |

**Table 3**

Mr Ahmad rents the hall for his son's wedding.Mr Ahmad uses the hall for **p **hours with payment RM**q.**

(i) Construct a fomula that is suitable for connecting q to p.

(ii)Find the usage period of the hall, in hours, if Mr Ahmad paid RM490

Please help me, I have many troubles in this question.

If I am reading this correctly, p is the amount of hours that Mr Ahmad used the hall for and q is the total price.

*100+15p=q *Would be the formula you would use because 15 is the price per hour and p is the amount of hours

Now set q to 490 and you have

*100+15p=490*

*-100*

* 15p=390*

* p=26*

So he would have used the hall for 26 hours

**i.)100+15p=q **

**ii.)p=26**
