How much is the salary of the manager at Sunland Barber Shop compared to the other barbers?

## Answer:

The total amount paid in salaries to the four barbers at the Sunland Barber Shop is $5,920 per month.

The manager at Sunland Barber Shop is paid a higher salary of $1,750 per month compared to the other barbers who are paid $1,390 each.

The Sunland Barber Shop employs four barbers. One barber, who also serves as the manager, is paid a salary of $1,750 per month. The other barbers are paid $1,390 per month.

Let's denote the salary of the manager as M and the salary of the other barbers as B. Given that the manager's salary is $1,750 per month (M = $1,750) and the salary of the other barbers is $1,390 per month (B = $1,390).

Since there are three other barbers, the total salary paid to them would be 3B. To find the total amount paid in salaries, we sum up the manager's salary and the total salary of the other barbers:

Total Salary = M + 3B

= $1,750 + 3($1,390)

= $1,750 + $4,170

= $5,920

Therefore, the total amount paid in salaries to the four barbers at the Sunland Barber Shop is $5,920 per month. The manager of the Sunland Barber Shop is paid a higher salary of $1,750 per month compared to the other barbers who are paid $1,390 each. The total amount paid in salaries to all four barbers is $5,920 per month.
