Answers

The plumber’s 2 hour and 26 min plumbing bill cost is $73

What is the plumber’s per minute rate?

The plumber’s per minute rate is the per half-hour rate divided by 30 minutes since the plumber charges $15 for every 30-minute job

per-minute rate=$15/30

per-minute rate=$0.50

Now, let us convert 2hours and 26 minutes to minutes, in other words, every 1 hour is 60 minutes, the two hours equal 120 minutes plus the 26 minutes gives a total of 146 minutes

Total minutes=120 min+26 min

total minutes=146 minutes

Total plumbing bill cost for 146 minutes is $0.50, the per-minute rate multiplied by the number of minutes the plumber needs to work in this case
