First, lets find how much Dante earned before taxes were taken out.

640 + 160 = $800 total earned that week.

Second, divide by 20 to find how many hours he worked.

800 / 20 =

40 hours he worked that week.Write an expression to resemble the question. Remember that “h” is the amount of hours he world that week.

h = (640 + 160) / 2Best of Luck!

Find the total amount paid before taxes were taken out by adding the two amounts together:

h = 640 + 160 / 20

640 + 160 = 800

h = 800/ 20

Now divide the total amount by the hourly rate:

h = 40
