According to given information, Equation of Melinda Earning = 75 + 12x Equation of Marcus Earning = 15x Where, x = Number of hours they worked. Now, we need to calculate when they will have same amount of money, so for that instance they shall equal to each other. 75 + 12x = 15x 15x - 12x = 75 3x = 75 x = 75/3 x = 25 After 25 hours, they will have the money = 15(25) = $375 So, your final answer is $375 Hope this helps!
