Answer:

He can buy 30157 raffle tickets

Step-by-step explanation:

Garth has a summer job and earns $9.32 per hour. One week, he works 1634 hours. This means that the total amount he earned that week is

9.32 × 1634 = $15228.88

He deposits $150 in a bank and decides to use the rest of the money to buy raffle tickets. It means that the amount he spent in buying the raffle tickets is

15228.88 – 150 = $15078.88

If each raffle ticket costs $0.50, then the number of raffle tickets that Gareth can buy is

15078.88/0.5 = 30157 tickets
