1. First, lets find how much Dante earned before taxes were taken out.

640 + 160 = \$800 total earned that week.

Second, divide by 20 to find how many hours he worked.

800 / 20 = 40 hours he worked that week.

Write an expression to resemble the question. Remember that “h” is the amount of hours he world that week.

h = (640 + 160) / 2

Best of Luck!

2. Find the total amount paid before taxes were taken out by adding the two amounts together:

h = 640 + 160 / 20

640 + 160 = 800

h = 800/ 20

Now divide the total amount by the hourly rate:

h = 40
