# Can someone help me with my Math Lab homework?

I am working on my math lab homework, and I am stuck on a question.

Q: Cashiers earn \$5.35 per hour at Happy's Pizzeria. Brenda works 5 hours per day, 3 days a week. Mike works 4 hours per day, 3 days a week. About how much more does Brenda earn than Mike in a week?

Relevance

Brenda works 5hours / day 3 days /week at \$5.35/hr

5*3 = 15 hours per week * \$5.35

15 *5.35 = \$80.25 / week

Mike works 4 hours / day 3 days / week same wage

4* 3 = 12 hours per week

12* 5.35 = \$64.20 / week

80.25 subtract 64.20

Brenda makes \$16.05 more

Multiply the number of hours worked times the number of days, then multiply that times the \$5.35. Subtract Brenda's total minus Mike's total.

Brenda: 5 x \$5.35=26.75x3=80.25

Mike: 4x\$5.35=21.40x3=\$64.20

Brenda makes 16.05 more a week or \$5.35 more/day

brenda makes (5.35)(5)=\$26.75 daily

Mike makes (5.35)(4)=\$21.40 daily

brenda makes (26.75)(3)=\$80.25 weekly

mike makes (21.40)(3)=\$64.20 weekly

\$80.25-\$64.20=\$16.05

Brenda makes about \$16 more than mike

Brenda:

5.35x5x3

26.75x3

80.25

Mike:

5.35x4x3

21.40x3

64.20

80.25-64.20= \$16.05
