using linq to return single value

I have a table that is an hourly rate and only contains one value that is of type integer.

I need a linq helper method just to return this single value

try this - if you need to add filters in, just add a where clause before the select line.
int returnValue = (from t in Context.YourTable
                   select t.HourlyRate).SingleOrDefault();
