## Problem

Four friends do yardwork for their neighbors over the weekend, earning $15, 20, 25,$ and $40,$ respectively. They decide to split their earnings equally among themselves. In total how much will the friend who earned $40$ give to the others? $\textbf{(A) }5 \qquad \textbf{(B) }10 \qquad \textbf{(C) }15 \qquad \textbf{(D) }20 \qquad \textbf{(E) }25$

## Solution

The friends earn $\left(15+20+25+40\right)=100$ in total. Since they decided to split their earnings equally, it follows that each person will get $\left(\frac{100}{4}\right)=25$. Since the friend who earned $40$ will need to leave with $25$, he will have to give $\left(40-25\right)=\boxed{\textbf{(C) }15}$ to the others.
