For your summer babysitting jobs you have 10 weeks to work before your family vacation and before you return to school in the fall. You are planning on earning and saving at least $1500 for your future car. Mrs. Harris is paying you $8.00 an hour to babysit during the day and Mrs. Sanchez is paying you $6.00 per hour to babysit her child in the evening.
• Let x = the number of hours you babysit for Mrs. Harris
• Let y = the number of hours you babysit for Mrs. Sanchez
