1. Since Taryn earns 122.50 to mow 7 lawns he charges
122.5/7 or \$ 17.50 to mow a lawn.

Since Alastair earns 112.50 to mow 9 lawns he charges
112.5/9 or \$ 12.50 to mow a lawn.

The number of hours he spends mowing does not enter this part of the question.

Earning of Taryn per hour = 112.5/7.5 or \$15.00 per hour
Earning of Alastair per hour = 122.5/5 or \$24.50 per hour

7. why is everyone saying Alastair charges \$12.50 to mow a lawn. its \$13.61 because 9 cant go into 1 but can go into 12 1 time then you do 12 minus 9 which is 3 then bring down the 2 which 32, now this is where everyone is messing up, 9 goes into 32 3 times not 2. 9 times 2 is 18 and 3 times 9 is 27 so theres your mistake
