Bloody proud of myself that I can work out how to apply the algebra equation to use a slope to find the missing x1 variable. When 2 days ago I had no idea. Of course I am not getting any writing done working out when the two pilots hired by Maria, one who will charge an upfront fee of $45 then $11.36 and hour the other who starts at $36 and then works at $13.50 an hour, will be paid the same amount of money.
