Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

For an hour of work you make 1760/11=160$ so you need to work 2880/160=18 hours to make 2880 dollars. 

Hope it helps. 


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

never mind, thank you!

x=2880/1760*11=18

using the rule of three.

If 11 hours are equivalent to 1760 dollars how much hours are equivalent to 2880 dollars ? 

11 - 1760

X  -  2880 

X=2880*11/1760

Hope it helps !!!
