Jared and Jake are two 14 years olds who rake leaves to make money. Jared does the old fashioned way with a rake. On one Sunday, it took him 6 hours to do 5 yards. He charged $16 for each yard. Jake rented a leaf blower for $20/day. He was able to do 8 yards in 4 hours. He charged $13 for each yard. Who makes the most money?
Answers for sheet # 5
$16/yard x 5 yards = $80
$13/yard x 8 yards = $104
Paid $20 for renting the blower
Earned = $104 - $20
Jake makes the most money
