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
