F) 11

Step-by-step explanation:

We know that she worked 18 hours, and earned $139. Let’s just say that she spent x hours baby-sitting. If she makes$5 per hour, the total amount of money she earned from baby-sitting would be 5x.

If she spent x hours baby-sitting, that would mean that she spent 18-x hours giving music lessons.

So, the total amount of money she earned from music lessons would be 12(18-x).

Now we can plug this into an equation.

5x + 12(18-x) = 139.

5x + 216 – 12x = 139.

5x – 12x = -77

-7x = -77

x = 11.

This means that she spent 11 hours baby-sitting.

Hope this helps!
