## Answers ( )

Answer:3.5 hours

Step-by-step explanation:use this linear equation

y = 45x + 55 y is the amount earned and x is the hours worked

plug in 212.50 for y then solve for x

212.50 = 45x + 55

157.5 = 45x

3.5 = x

so he worked for 3.5 hours or 3 hours and 30 minutes

hope this helps <3
