## To find out how many hours Abraham will have to work to earn $483, we need to divide the total amount earned by the hourly rate.

Let's say Abraham works for 'x' hours to earn $483.

Using the formula:

Total earnings = Hourly rate * Number of hours worked

We can set up the equation as:

483 = 11.50 * x

Now, to solve for 'x,' we need to isolate the variable.

First, divide both sides of the equation by 11.50:

483 / 11.50 = x

This simplifies to:

41.956521739130434782608695652174 = x

Rounding this number to the nearest whole number, we find that Abraham will need to work approximately 42 hours to earn $483.
