Answer:Step-by-step explanation:The key here is to find out how much he makes per hour. We can find that out using the info given.

286 = 13x so

x = 22 dollars per hour. For 7 hours of work then,

7(22) = $154

The person above is absolutely right and I agree with it! You could also find the unit rate this way:

Find the unit rate of dollars per hour:

286 ÷ 13 = 22

So the unit rate is $22 per hour of work

Either way, the answer is right

Hope this helps!
