Gary started with $9
Linda started with $10
After Gary buys nachos, he has $5.45 (4.55 less than Linda's 10.00)
So, the nachos cost $3.55 (9.00 less the 5.45 he has left)
Or, you can reason that Linda started out with $1.00 more than Gary.
She ended up with $4.55 more, so Gary must have lost $3.55.
