 Rate-of-work-word-problems/121396: This question is from textbook algebra and trigonometry with analiytic geometry A consulting engineer's time is billed at \$100 per hour, and her assistant's is billed at \$20 per hour. A customer received a bill for \$1200 for a certain job. If the assistant worked 3 hours less than the engineer, how much time did each bill on the job?1 solutions Answer 89072 by checkley71(8403)   on 2008-01-20 17:57:36 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!100X+20(X-3)=1200 100X+20X-60=1200 120X=1200+60 120X=1260 X=1260/120 X=10.5 HOURS WAS BILLED FOR THE ENGINEER OR: 100*10.5=\$1050 WAS THE ENGINEER'S BILL. 20(10.5-3)=20*7.5=\$150 WAS THE ASSISTANT'S BILL. PROOF 100*10.5+20*7.5=1200 1050+150=1200 1200=1200
