4556: Pumpkin Carving for Charity*

Instead of going Trick-or-Treating on Halloween this year, six friends decided to use their time to carve pumpkins for a local charity event. The artistically carved pumpkins were auctioned at the event and much to everyone’s surprise they raised $180 for the charity!

  • The final bid on Selena’s pumpkin was $10 more than the final bid on Ty’s pumpkin.
  • Ty’s, Niko’s, and Corrine’s pumpkins each earned the same amount.
  • Araceli’s and Forrest’s pumpkins each brought in the same amount of money as Selena’s.

What were the final bids on the individual pumpkins carved by the six friends?
