$1$

$\27.50$

$\17.50$

$2$

$\25.00$

$\22.50$

$3$

$\32.50$

$\12.50$

$4$

$\15.00$

$5$

$\17.00$

Find the total amount that each of them makes.

Randall : $\27.50+\25.00+\32.50=\85$

Stephano: $\17.50+\22.50+\12.50+\15.00+\17.00=\84.50$

Compare the total earnings of each. Then, determine the difference in their earnings.

$\85−\84.50=\0.50$

Randall earned more money. He earned $\0.50$ more.
