Answer: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.
