    Tom's hourly wage is lower than Martin's. Therefore Tom's wage for the week will be lower than Martin's, the reason being that they both worked the same number of hours. Also Tom's percentage of the tips is lower than Martin's percentage of the tips. Therefore it is not possible for Tom to have made more money than Martin for the week. Can you now see the correct choice of answer?
