Hao and Alison are baking a cake for two parties. Each party has the same amount of cake and everyone gets a specific amount. Everything’s going great until they reach the end where they cut the cake, they then realize that the last person for the second party didn’t tell them how much he wanted.

Problem 185 - Linda makes 6 cakes per hour. Sara makes 4 cakes per hour. If Linda gets paid $11 less than Sara for each cake, how much in dollars should Sara be paid for each cake for Linda and Sara to earn the same amount each hour?
