# Shiv works in a mall and gets paid ₹50 per hour. Last week he worked for 7 hours and this week he will work for x hours. Write an algebraic expression for the money paid to him for both the weeks

**Solution:**

Given, Shiv works in a mall and gets paid ₹50 per hour.

Last week, Shiv worked for 7 hours

This week, he will work for x hours

We have to write an algebraic expression for the money paid to him for both the weeks.

Pay received by Shiv for working one hour = ₹50

Pay received for working 7 hours = 7 × 50

= ₹350

So, last week Shiv worked for 7 hours and gets paid ₹350

Pay received for working x hours = x × 50

= 50x

So, this week Shiv worked for x hours and gets paid ₹50x

Money paid to him for both the weeks = pay received for working 7 hours + pay received for working x hours

= 350 + 50x

= ₹50(7 + x)

Therefore, the algebraic expression is 50(7 + x).
