To solve this question you must first find out how much each of them earn. Let x represent Connor's pay and y represent Jose's pay. You can then set up two algebraic equations: $.15x=3000$ $.15y=3600$ You can then proceed to solve for x and y. $x=20000$ $y=24000$ To find the difference subtract x from y: $y-x=4000$ You are now finished. Option F is $4000.
