1.

How much will Ryan earn in the first week? ___________ How much will Ryan earn in the second week? ___________ How much money will Ryan earn in the two weeks? ___________ 2.

If Ryan continues this patter every two weeks, how much will he make for one month? (with 4 weeks in a month)______________________ How much will Ryan make in a whole summer if the summer is 3 months?____________________ His younger brother, Ben, helps him for the second month and gives him $20.00out of what he makes every week.3.

How much will Ryan pay Ben for his month of work? _____________ How much will Ryan have left for himself in that month of work?______________ How much will he have for all summer? ______________ Mr. Jones just told Ryan he wanted his lawn cut the first of the month instead ofthe first and third week of every month.4.

How much money does Ryan make now for one month since Jonesdecided to get his lawn cut only once a month? ______________ How much does he make for the whole summer now? ____________
