Take $345 and subtract $160.

It equals $185.

Now take 185 and divide by 37.

It equals 5.

The answer is 5 hours.

I want to know where car repair shops are charging $37 per hour for labor?

Most shops in my area charge over $100/hour

Let's let H = number of hours spent repairing

Total cost = 345

cost of parts = 160, this does not change (by hour or anything else)

cost of labor = 37 per hour times the number of hours = 37 * H

Total cost = cost of parts + cost of labor

345 = 160 + 37 * H

I leave it to you to finish

Unrealistic math problem. No one charges 37 an hour for labor
