Question:

# Terry earns three times more per hour than Tim. Tim earns $2 more per hour than Angie. As a group they earn$43 per hour. What’s Angie’s hourly wage?

A \$7.00
explanation

Let x equal Angie’s hourly wage. x + 2 would then represent Tim’s hourly wage, and 3(x + 2) would represent Terry’s hourly wage.
x + (x +2) + 3(x +2) = 43
x + x + 2 + 3x + 6 = 43
5x + 8 = 43
5x = 35
x = 35/5
x = 7
