Anthony and Cindy were each given x dollars in advance to perform at a community festival. Anthony eventually performed on all 14 days of the festival, while Cindy performed on 4 fewer days than Anthony performed. If Cindy gives Anthony y dollars of her advance payment so that they would have each received the same daily rate, what was Anthony paid in advance, in terms of y?

Anthony and Cindy were each given x dollars in advance to perform at a community festival. Anthony eventually performed on all 14 days of the festival, while Cindy performed on 4 fewer days than Anthony performed. If Cindy gives Anthony y dollars of her advance payment so that they would have each received the same daily rate, what was Anthony paid in advance,in terms of y? a)2y B)4y C)5y D)6y E)10y

Anthony performed for 14 days meansw Cindy performed for(14-4)=10 days.

If Cindy gives y dollars to Anthony their Daily rate will be equal.It means

(x+y)/14=(x-y)/10 Solving we get, x=6y

Now Anthony's Advance is x=6y .So answer should be D.

Anthony and Cindy were each given x dollars in advance to perform at a community festival. Anthony eventually performed on all 14 days of the festival, while Cindy performed on 4 fewer days than Anthony performed. If Cindy gives Anthony y dollars of her advance payment so that they would have each received the same daily rate, what was Anthony paid in advance,in terms of y? a)2y B)4y C)5y D)6y E)10y

Anthony performed for 14 days, and Cindy for 10 days. Cindy gives Anthony y dollars to make the daily rate equal. Anthony's rate = Cindy's rate (x+y)/14=(x-y)/10 10x+10y=14x-14y 4x=24y x=4y

Anthony and Cindy were each given x dollars in advance to perform at a community festival. Anthony eventually performed on all 14 days of the festival, while Cindy performed on 4 fewer days than Anthony performed. If Cindy gives Anthony y dollars of her advance payment so that they would have each received the same daily rate, what was Anthony paid in advance, in terms of y?

John and Mary were each paid x dollars in advance to do a certain job together. John worked on the job for 10 hours and Mary worked 2 hours less than John. If Mary gave John y dollars of her payment so that they would have received the same hourly wage, what was the dollar amount, in terms of y, that John was paid in advance?

Anthony and Cindy were each given x dollars in advance to perform at a community festival. Anthony eventually performed on all 14 days of the festival, while Cindy performed on 4 fewer days than Anthony performed. If Cindy gives Anthony y dollars of her advance payment so that they would have each received the same daily rate, what was Anthony paid in advance, in terms of y?

A. 2y B. 4y C. 5y D. 6y E. 10y

The amount Cindy has in the end is x-y dollars and she worked for 10 days; The amount Anthony has in the end is x+y dollars and he worked for 14 days;

We are told that in this case their daily rate was the same: \(daily \ rate=\frac{payment}{# \ of \ days \ worked}=\frac{x-y}{10}=\frac{x+y}{14}\), from \(\frac{x-y}{10}=\frac{x+y}{14}\) we get that \(x=6y\).

Anthony and Cindy were each given x dollars in advance to perform at a community festival. Anthony eventually performed on all 14 days of the festival, while Cindy performed on 4 fewer days than Anthony performed. If Cindy gives Anthony y dollars of her advance payment so that they would have each received the same daily rate, what was Anthony paid in advance, in terms of y?

A. 2y B. 4y C. 5y D. 6y E. 10y

You can also solve it by using easy numbers.

Anthony works for 14 days. Cindy works for 10 days. Say, the daily rate is $1/day which would mean that finally Anthony has $14 and finally Cindy has $10. Now it's obvious that they both would have received $12 and Cindy would have given Anthony $2 so that she would have $10 while Anthony would have $14. So y = $2 (Amount given by Cindy to Anthony) Advance paid to Anthony = $12 = 6*2 = 6y Answer (D)
