    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
