 Day Randall Stephano $1$ $27.50$ $17.50$ $2$ $25.00$ $22.50$ $3$ $32.50$ $12.50$ $4$ $15.00$ $5$ $17.00$
• Find the total amount each of them earned.
Randall: $27.50 + 25.00 + 32.50 = 85$
Stephano: $17.50 + 22.50 + 12.50 + 15.00 + 17.00 = 84.50$

To compare their total earnings, find the difference between them.

$85 − 84.50 = 0.50$
