    Answer:

    $12

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Matt makes $80 a month mowing lawns while James also mows lawns and makes x dollars less per month.

    That is, the amount that James makes a month is:

    80 – x

    James makes $816 per year.

    Since there are 12 months in a year, this implies that:

    (80 – x) * 12 = 816

    => 960 – 12x = 816

    960 – 816 = 12x

    144 = 12x

    => x = 144 / 12 = $12

    James makes $12 less than Matt every month
