C(t) = 50 + 75t

Step-by-step explanation:

The electrician charges a set fee of \$50. This fee is independent on the number of hours he spends in each house.

He charges an additional \$75 per hour.

If the number of hours he spends working in each house is t, then, after t hours, the additional charges will be:

75 * t = 75t

The total cost, C(t) of the electrician’s services is the sum of the set fee and the additional charges after t hours. That is:

C(t) = 50 + 75t

This is the function C(t), representing the total cost of the electrician’s services.
