  1. cost = mt + c, where t is the number of hours and c is your constant
    given: whn t = 5.5, cost = 3500
    3500 = 5.5m + c
    given: when t = 4, cost = 2900
    2900 = 4m + c
    subtract those two equations,
    600 = 1.5m
    m = 400
    sub back into 2900 = 4m + c
    2900 = 1600 + c
    c = 1300

    now you have the complete cost equation
    cost = 400t + 1300

    sub in your other time and proceed
