You are paid $8.55/hr at your part-time job. You work 10 hours per week. You are considering working a part-time job for $6.25/hr, and it pays tips. You will earn an average of $3.00/hr in tips. If you work the same 10 hours at the new job, how much more is your total gross income including tips compared to your old job?

  1. 3+6.25 = 9.25 is the amount per hour you will earn at the new job

    So the difference between incomes of the two jobs is:

    9.25*10 - 8.55*10 = 7
