    Answer:

    Michael worked for 5.5 hours.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Total money earned = $74.25  

    Money Earned in tips = $38.50

    Cost per hour = $6.50

    Let number of hours he worked be x.

    We need to find total hours he worked.

    It can be find by;

    Total money he earned is equal to Cost per hour multiplied by number of hours he worked plus money earned in tips.

    Hence;

    Cost per hour × number of hours he worked + Money Earned in tips = Total money earned

    Computing in mathematical form we get;

    6.5x+38.50 = 74.25\\6.5x = 74.25-38.50\\6.5x=35.75\\\\x= \frac{35.75}{6.5} =5.5

    Hence Micheal worked for 5.5 hours.
