    Answer: 42 and a half hours

    Step-by-step explanation:

    subtract the total amount billed the client from the upfront cost of 375

    = 6750 – 375

    =$ 6,375

    Next, divide the balance cost by hourly charge to get the number of hours

    Given that hourly charge is $150

    Number of hours charged = 6375/150

    =42.5 = 42 1/2 hours

    I hope this is clear, please mark as brainliest answer.

    Answer:

    42.5 hours or 42h30mins

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given from the question;

    Charges per hour =$150

    Upfront =$375

    Total bill = $6,750

    Let Total bill be T, Charges be C and Upfront U.

    Therefore, total bill equals;

    T = C + U

    Substituting the given variables, we have;

    6750 = C + 375

    Making C the subject formula;

    C = 6750-375

    C = $6375

    Hence, to find the number of hours worked, we divide charges C by $150

    Hours, H = 6375÷150

    H = 42.5hours

    The number of hours worked is 42 hours and 30 minutes.

    42h30mins.
