Brandon earns \(\$1,050\) a week and Brad earns \(\$160\) a day. If both of them work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week who earns a higher hourly wage? How much higher is it?

\(\text { Brandon; } \$ 6.25\)

Explanation

To find out who earns more and by how much, find out each person’s hourly wage. Brandon earns \(\$1,050\) for \(8 \times 5 = 40\) hours of work.
So his hourly wage is \(\$1,050 \div 40 = \$26.25\). Brad earns \(\$160\) for 8 hours of work.
So his hourly wage is \(\$160 \div 8 = \$20\). Therefore, Brandon earns \(\$26.25 – \$20.00 = \$6.25 \)more an hour.
