Let's write what we do know.

6 people are at an elementary school gave a total of 1,890 dollars, and each gave the same amount.

Let's call x=the amount given. Then

6x=1890 (divide both sides by six)

x=315.

Thus each of the six people gave $315  (elementary school).

We know that 5 people at a middle school gave $280 dollars each.

To see how much more people at the elementary school gave versus the middle school, we subtract the two numbers from each other.

$315-$280= $35 dollars.

Thus we can conclude that the elementary school people gave $35 dollars more than the middle school people.
