    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
