1. Answer:

The equation to represent the situation is represented below as

20.00 = 2 + 4x

Step-by-step explanation:

A college charged \$ 2.00 to park a car in their garage and an additional \$4.00 an hour for each hour packed. Tom paid \$20. 00 to park there. The equation to best represent the situation is written below

Let

x = number of hours Tom parked

Tom paid a total of \$20.00 to park .

Total amount paid by Tom = \$20.00

The total amount he paid = 2 + 4x

Therefore,

20.00 = 2 + 4x

If you want to find the number of hours he packed we have to find x in the equation.

20.00 = 2.00 + 4x

20 .00 – 2.00 = 4x

18 = 4x

x = 18/4

x = 4.5 hours

So from the equation we could find that Tom packed for 4.5 hours.
