Question 121345: A bricklayer and an electrician together spend 90 hours working on a new house. If the bricklayer earns $12 per hour, the electrician earns $16 an hour, and the owner pays them a total of $1350 for their work, how many hours does each worker spend on the house?

You can put this solution on YOUR website! x+y=90 or x=90-y
x=22.5 hours for the bricklayer.
90-22.5=67.5 hours for the electrician.
