The table above gives the prices for tax returns prepared by each of two tax return preparers and the rates at which those preparers can complete tax return in an 8-hour workday. If both preparers decide to work 12 hours on a certain day, how much more gross income is made by tax preparer A than by tax preparer B?

a) $120

b) $180

c) $240

d) $360

e) $540

Please assist with above problem.

Work done by A = 1200 (ie, 16*75)

Work done by B = 1080 (ie, 12*90)

Diff in work done in 8 hour workday is $120 ( Since A > B ; A works more than B)

Diff in work done in 12 hour workday is $120/8*12 = $180

Hence answer will be (B) 180
