Show and explain your work. Draw pictures or make tables to explain your answer.

To raise money for the party, Jerry, Mary, and Carrie washed cars. One week Jerry worked for 20 hours, Mary worked for 12 hours, and Carrie worked for 18 hours. That week they were paid a total of $225.

How much much money should Jerry receive?

Answer for sheet # 80

They worked 50 hours in all. They were paid $225 for 50 hours of work. They were paid at the rate of $4.50/hour ($200/50 hours).

Each of them should be paid in proportion to the number of hours they worked.

Jerry = $4.50 x 20 hour = $90

Mary = $54

Carrie = $81
