This doesn't make sense to me. Did you include all the information as phrased in the problem?

increases hours and increases wage for additional weekly wage. You can solve the problem algebraically but there is no numerical solution. The weekly wages seem small... are you sure you copied the problem correctly?

I agree with the rest of the posters... Two equations, three unknowns: Set x=increased hours per week (1) pq = 2.4 (2) (p+0.15)*(q+x)=3.3
