Q:
# Two mechanics worked on a car. The first mechanic worked for 10 hours, and the second mechanic worked for 15 hours. Together they charged a total of $1900. What was the rate charged per hour by each mechanic if the sum of the two rates was $155 per hour?

Accepted Solution

A:

When you are looking for the answer in this type of scenario you do.

I=PRT (interest = price•rate•time)

I = $1900•$155•25 (you add the two times)

I = $7,362,500

Hope this helps.
