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?

\((65)(70)+(20)(18)\)

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: \((65)\times(70) + (20)\times(18).\)
