Answer:

9 hrs

Step-by-step explanation:

Joshua has already saved $43.50 so you subtract $43.50 from 70 which leaves you with $26.50. Joshua still needs $26.50.

$26.50 divided by $3 per hr is 8.833 repeating. Obviously you can’t work 8.833 hrs so you round it up to 9. So, Joshua has to work for at least 9 hrs more.

Hope this helps 🙂

The answer is 14.50. Hope that helped
