Division

Three siblings Helena, Oliver and George split the bag with candies on merit in the ratio 6:1:4. How many candies should each get if in bag were 88?

Result

x =  48
y =  8
z =  32

Solution:

6 a + 1 a + 4 a = 88
x= 6 a
y= 1 a
z= 4 a

11a = 88
6a-x = 0
a-y = 0
4a-z = 0

a = 8
x = 48
y = 8
z = 32
