Name: _____________________ Date_____________

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

Lisa and Bill are making necklaces to sell at the children's festival. Lisa worked for over two hours and made 30 necklaces. Then Bill came to help. They each made 10 more necklaces. They sold all the necklaces and made $10.50. To be fair, how much money should each person get to keep?

Answers for Sheet # 32

Since Lisa made 40 out of the 50 necklaces, she should receive 4/5 of the money. Lisa should receive $8.40 and Bill $2.10.
