Let his earnings from first song be x
Since the earnings from second song is 5 times the earnings from first song, hence earning from second song = 5x
Hence total earnings = x+5x=6x
Since he donated all of his earnings to charity and he donated 864 altogether, hence
6x=864
x=144
Amount of money second song earn more than first song = 5x — x = 4x = 4(144) =576
