Answer:Pam: $181

Amanda: $362

Julie: $452

Step-by-step explanation:(What does Mike have to do with this problem?)

Let a = Amanda’s pay

Let p = Pam’s pay

Let j = Julie’s pay

“Amanda made twice what Pam earned”

a = 2p

“Julie made $90 more than Amanda”

j = a + 90

j = 2p + 90

Pam earned p

Total salary

a + p + j = 2p + p + 2p + 90

Total salary

$995

2p + p + 2p + 90 = 995

5p = 905

p = 181

a = 2p = 2(181) = 362

j = 2p + 90 = 362 + 90 = 452

Answer:

Pam: $181

Amanda: $362

Julie: $452
