Answer: (Yesterday’s Pay) + (Today’s Pay) = (Two Day’s Pay) (Yesterday’s Pay) + (Today’s Pay) = \$130 \$50 + (Today’s Pay) = \$130 \$50 + (Today’s Pay) - \$50 = \$130 - \$50 \$50 - \$50 + (Today’s Pay) = \$130 - \$50 0 + (Today’s Pay) = \$130 - \$50 (Today’s Pay) = \$130 - \$50 (Today’s Pay) = \$80 today Bob worked 8 hours (rate of pay) * 8 hrs = (Today’s Pay) (rate of pay) * 8 hrs = \$80 (rate of pay) * 8 hrs / (8 hrs) = \$80 / (8 hrs) (rate of pay) * 1 = \$80 / (8 hrs) (rate of pay) = \$80 / (8 hrs) (rate of pay) = \$10 / hr >>> the final answer is: \$10 per hour Thanks for writing.
