Addison earns a fixed hourly rate working as a sales clerk. If she works on a holiday, she earns a different hourly rate than she earns on a regular day. In one week, she earns $188.50 by working 5 hours on a holiday and 16 hours during regular days. A different week, she earns $254.00 by working 8 hours on a holiday and 20 hours during regular days. How much more is Addison’s holiday hourly rate than her regular hourly rate?

_Award brainliest if helped! Holiday : 5 hours  & 8 hours Regular Days : 16hours & 20hours Lets let Holiday be H and Regular days be R 5H + 16R = 188.50 (first info in qn) 8H + 20R = 254.00 Hence , solving both equations simultaneously,  H = $10.5 , R = $8.5 How much more  = 10.5 - 8.5 = 2  Addison earns $2 more hourly from a holiday than regular days.
