Multiply total hours worked by pay rate:

20.5 x $13.75 = $281.88

**Answer:**

x=−2 and y=−1

**Step-by-step explanation:**

<u>Problem:</u>

Solve y=x2;y=−x−3

<u>Steps:</u>

I will solve your system by substitution.

y=1/2x;y=−x−3

Step: Solve y= 1/2x for y:

Step: Substitute 1/2 x for y in y=−x−3:

y=−x−3

1/2x= =−x−3

1/2x+x=−x−3+x(Add x to both sides)

3/2x = -3

3/2x/3/2 = -3/3/2 (Divide both sides by 3/2)

x=−2

Step: Substitute −2 for x in y=1/2x:

y=1/2x

y=1/2(-2)

y=−1(Simplify both sides of the equation)

<u>Answer:</u>

x=−2 and y=−1

11x = 44

X=4

44 + 7 = 51

5x = 20

31 + 20 =51

51 = 51
