Lamonte needed to get his computer fixed. He took it to the repair store. The technician at the store worked on the computer for 4.25 hours and charged him $141 for parts. The total was $544.75. What was the cost of labor, per hour?
Take the number of hours times the price per hour, plus the cost of parts. That equals the total cost.
x = cost of labor per hour 4.25x + 141 = 544.75 {number of hours times price per hour, plus parts, equals total cost} 4.25x = 403.75 {subtracted 141 from each side} x = 95 {divided each side by 4.25} Cost of labor per hour = $95 Ask Algebra House
