If you are paid a weekly base salary of $200 plus an hourly wage of $5.00, determine an equation for finding your weekly gross pay (p) for t hours. Specify an amount between 25 and 50 hours worked for one week and determine your gross pay for that week.

First, the hourly pay would simply be p = 5t.

Adding the weekly salary: p = 5t + 200.

If you worked 30 hours: p = 5(30) + 200 = 150 + 200 = 350.
