During the summer, you work 30 hours per week at a gas station and earn $8.75 per hour. You also work as a landscaper for $11 per hour and can work as many hours as you want. You want to earn a total of $400 per week. How many hours must you work as a landscaper?

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

30 hours/week * 8.75 per hour= $262.5 dollars/week

Total needed= $400

262.5 that we got + hours needed (x)*$ 11= total money (400)

Equation will be

262.5+ 11x=400

11x= 137.5

x= 12.5 hours

Therefore, I need to work 12.5 hours at the landscaper to earn total of $400

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