    Answer: he has 15 more basketball cards than baseball cards.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The total number of sport trading cards that Gerry has is 50.

    Of those cards, 1/5 of them are baseball cards. This means that the number of baseball cards that he has is

    1/5 × 50 = 10

    1/10 of them are football cards. This means that the number of football cards that he has is

    1/10 × 50 = 5

    If the rest are basketball cards, it means that the number of basketball cards that he has is

    50 – (10 + 15) = 50 – 25 = 25

    Therefore, the number if basketball cards that he has more than baseball cards is

    25 – 10 = 15
