Homework Help: Math

Posted by Lou on Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 9:31pm.

For this problem, I need help creating a chart for this: Brian O'Reily earns twice as much each week as a tutor than he does pumping gas. His total weekly wages are $150 more than that of his younger sister. She earns one quarter as much as Brian does as a tutor. How much does Brian earn as a tutor?
X = Brian's earning from pumping gas
2x - Brian's earning from tutoring

Would the chart be like this? This is where I need help. Where does the $150 come in?

Gas Tutoring Wages
Brian x 2x x+2x
Sister 2x/4 = x/2
