Question

PLEASE HELPPPP!!! Two mechanics worked on a car. The first mechanic worked for 20 hours, and the second mechanic worked for 15 hours. Together they charged a total of $2450. What was the rate charged per hour by each mechanic if the sum of the two rates was$145 per hour?

2. Answer: the mechanics charge $72.50 each. Step-by-step explanation: You add how much time the mechanics worked. You then divide how much the amount charged was You’ll come up with$70, however the second part of the question states that it wants you to find how much the rate was if both mechanics together charged $145 per hour Well, 70×2 is 140. So to make it even you divide 5 in half. 5/2 is 2.5 You then turn that into money amount. Therefore the answer is$72.50
