(1) If the consultant's hourly rate had been $3 less, then the cost for the a hours of consultation would have been$300 less.
so loss of $3 per hour results in$300
number of hour = $$\frac{300}{3}=100$$
hourly rate = $$\frac{5000}{100=50}$$
sufficient

(2) If the consultant's hourly rate had been $4 more, then the cost for the a hours would have been 8% more.$4 more per hour results in 8% more
and 8% = $$5000*\frac{8}{100}=400$$
so hour = $$\frac{400}{4}=100$$
and hourly rate = $$\frac{5000}{100}=50$$
