Mr. Levin sells a load of firewood for \( \$65\). He charges an additional \(\$20\) if he also stacks the wood. Of the 70 loads he delivered in October, he stacked 18. Which of the following expressions represents the amount he earned in October?

Explanation

For the sale of 70 loads of wood at \( \$65\) each, he makes \( (65)\times (70)\) dollars. For stacking 18 loads at \(\$20\) each, he makes \((20)\times(18) \)dollars. Add the two expressions together to get an expression for the total amount he earned in October: \((65)\times(70) + (20)\times(18).\)
