Let x dollars be the amount that Joel made over the summer.

If Gary made four times as much as Joel, then Gary made 4x dollars.

Combined they then made \(x+4x=5x\) dollars.

Since the combined amount the made is $475, then \(5x=475\).

Dividing both sides by 5 then gives \(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{475}}}{{{x}}}}={95}\)

Joel then earned \(x=$95\) and Gary earned \(4x=4(95)=$380\).
