3-49.

Alex earns $7.75$ a day by walking dogs for his neighbors. If he walks dogs for $12$ days, how much money will he make? Show how you got your answer.

If Samantha was a competing dog-walker whose rate was $6$ a day and she also worked for $12$ days, Samantha would earn $72$, since $6(12) = 72$. Use this similar situation to help you solve the problem.
