1. 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.

2. 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.
