## Money :$

Helen gets paid at least $78 per hour depending on how quickly she makes the candy. If she works 8 hours one day how much will she earn?

## Amber the Cashier

Amber got paid $9 one day and _____ the next. If she got a total of less than $40 what inequality could you use to represent this situation?
