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
