Karen works part time assembling computer desks for an office supplies store.
The store purchases the desks for $54, and Karen is paid $7.25 per hour to assemble them. Each
computer desk is then sold to customers for a cost of $100. The profit earned by the store can be
found using the equation
P = (100 – 54)d – 7.25h. In the
equation, d is the number of computer desks built and h is the number of hours
Karen spent assembling them. If Karen gets a raise of $0.35 per hour, how will this equation
change?
a.  P = (100 – 54)d – 7.60h  c.  P = (100 – 54)d – 7.60(h
+0.35)  b.  P = (100 – 54)d – 7.60h – 0.35  d.  P = (100 – 54)d – 7.65h
