A mechanic charges $35to perform an inspection on a car, and $55per hour for a repair. Which equation gives the total cost, y, for a repair that lasts xhours? Please explain and show your work Here are the options!35xβˆ’55=y 35x+55=y 55xβˆ’35=y 55x+35=y

Accepted Solution

The answer is 55x+35=y. So per hour, it is 55 dollars. So if they work on it, it would be 55 * 6 which would be 330, and then you add the inspection fee. So whether they work on the car or not, for no matter how long, it is going to be 55+35=y and then you get 55x+35=y for the amount of time.Β
