Sally paid \$2 more than Martha. If the total bill was \$5.64, how much did Sally pay for her lunch? a. \$1.82 b. \$2.00 c. \$3.64 . \$3.82 e. \$7.64 : Let the amount Martha Paid be:x Then the amount Sally paid is:x+2 (\$2 more than Martha) Add the two and you get:\$5.64 : (x)+(x+2)=5.64 2x+2=5.64 2x+2-2=5.64-2 2x=3.64 2x/2=3.64/2 x=1.82 The amount that Martha paid is:x=\$1.82 The amount that Sally paid is:x+2=1.82+2=\$3.82 (d) Happy Calculating!!!
