5 boys decided to get summer jobs caring for the gardens and lawns of their neighbors. Each boy cared for the lawn of a different neighbor, worked for a different number of hours each day, and got paid a different amount for each hour of work. Can you figure out which boy worked for which neighbor, how often he worked, and how much he got paid using the following clues? *note* just because one boy works more hours than another, does NOT mean he gets paid more per hour or even in a single day.

1. None of the boys worked for a family who shared the same first initial with him.

2. Aaron, the boy who works for the Dilweeds, and the boy who works 6 hours a day are all brothers.

3. The two boys who work 4 and 8 hours a day get paid the same amount as hours that they work; Jack is one of these boys but Eric is not.

4. The Emmertons do not employ any of the three brothers, but they do pay $10 an hour.

5. The Dilweeds only need service 2 hours a day, and therefore pay the least amount.

6. Aaron works twice as long as Eric but half as long as Jack.

7. The Williams pay more than the Jungers but less than the Simons.

8. Brad works more hours than Sean but gets paid less.
