Answer:We know that the expression that models the situation is:

45 – n

Where n is the amount that she lost.

We know that she lost $3 for each hour closed.

And the shop was 8 hours closed, so the total loss is:

8*$3 = $24

The profit is the difference between the revenue (we know that it is $45) and the loss (we know that it is $24)

Then the profit is:

$45 – $24 = $21
