The store prepares an estimation of 1480 for the total. How long of time would the labor need to take to build the dock if the cost is 1480. Give a complete solution. ---------------- Let "x" be the number of hours to do the job. EQUATION: Cost to do the job = \$1000+\$30x If cost =1480, 1000+30x=1480 30x=480 x=16 hours. Cheers, Stan H.
