A tutor is trying to start a company. She plans to tutor 10 kids. For each kid she is charging a price of 40$, and a base rate of $150 to account for travel time/resources. Set up an equation and determine how much she would make with the 10 kids.

T= 150 + 40s (T= the total paid to tutor, s= # of students) T= 150 + 40 (10) = 150 + 400 = 550

### Subject: Algebra

A student is working as a babysitter/nanny in their neighborhood. They charge a set base fee of $50.00 and a charge of $24.67 per every hour that they are tutoring. A) Set up a linear equation to represent the total charge (T) that this student can make. B) Now figure out how much money this student will make on Friday night if they are babysitting for 12 hours.

The equation will represent a linear form: with a base rate of $50.00 represented as the y-intercept and the $24.67 representing the slope. Therefore the Total Cost will be represented as: T= 50 + 24.67x. Here, x represents the # of hours that this student is babysitting. Now that the equation has been made, we can plug in x=12 and solve for T. The total cost for 12 hours of babysitting comes out to be 50+(24.67)(12) = $346.04.
