Divide 8

Divide 6840 by x y and z, in such a way that x has twice as much as y, who has half as much as z

Correct answer:

x =  2736
y =  1368
z =  2736

Step-by-step explanation:

6840=x+y+z x=2y 2y=z  6840=x+(x/2)+(2y) 6840=x+(x/2)+x  6840=x+(x/2)+x  5x=13680  x=2736
y=x/2=2736/2=1368
z=2 y=2 1368=2736
