The amount of money Sharita makes varies directly with the number of hours she works. If she earns $41.25 for 5 hours of work, how much will she earn if she works 8 hours?

Let M be the amount she earns and H the hours worked; M[latex] \alpha H[/latex] M=aH Where a is a constant of proportionality; Given that M=41.25 and H=5 41.25=5a a=[latex] \frac{41.25}{5} [/latex] a=8.25 The equation then is; M=8.25H When she works 8 hours; M=8.25*8 =66 dollars
