If the cost of labor is \$63 per hour, how many hours of labor did it take to repair the sailboat? -------------------------------- Let the number of hours of labor be "x": Equation: 1603 = 532 + 63x 63x = 1071 x = 17 hours ================= Cheers, Stan H. Answer by jojo14344(1512)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Total Bill = Parts + Labor ------> Working Eqn *Take note: Labor = rate x no. of hours Let x=no.of hours Substitute all given to our Working Eqn: \$1603= \$532 + (\$63/hr)(no. of hours) \$1603-\$532=(\$63)(x) \$1071=(\$63)(x), divide both side by 63: x=\$1071/\$63= 17hrs total hours of labor Check, \$1603 = \$532 + \$63 (17hrs) \$1603 = \$532 + \$1071 \$1603 = \$1603 Thank you, Jojo
