Question

al receives $25 weekly allowance. he also babysits his two younger siblings on weekends and is paid $9 per hour. al’s friend, Mathew does not get a weekly allowance, but works in his dad’s store after after school. for this he earns $14 per hour. how many hours do they need to work to earn the same amount of money?

## Answers ( No )

To answer this question you would set this up as an equation with all the information about Al on one side being equal to all the information for Matthew on the other side. This is what it would look like: $25 + $9h= $14h. h represents the number of hours they work. It they each worked 5 hours a week, they would make the same amount of money. I determined this by solving the equation for h. I subtracted 9h on both sides leaving you with $25=5h. H would equal 5 hours.
