1. Answer: Lincoln worked 2 hours lifeguarding and 8 hours tutoring.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x represent the number of hours that Lincoln worked lifeguarding last week.

Let y represent the number of hours that Lincoln worked tutoring last week.

Lincoln is working two summer jobs, making \$13 per hour lifeguarding and \$23 per hour tutoring. Last week Lincoln earned a total of \$210. This means that

13x + 23y = 210 – – – – – — – – – — – -1

He worked 4 times as many hours tutoring as he worked hours lifeguarding. This means that

y = 4x

Substituting x = 4y into equation 1, it becomes

13x + 23(4x) = 210

13x + 92x = 210

105x = 210

x = 210/105 = 2

y = 4y = 4 × 2

y = 8
