Hey Geust, I think none of the answers are correct.

If Weslet earns **$6.50 **an hour at the Bames and Noble bookstore, then the money he earns will be depending on **X**.

X is the number of hours he worked, and Y is the number of money he earned.

We then see the equation unfold. $6.50 an hour for X hours is Y.

We transfer this word phrase into an equation to get

**$6.50x = y**

Please tell me if I am incorrect. I hope this helps!
