Scholarship

The annual scholarship of the best student and second-best student in the class is 3500 euros in total. The best student scholarship in 8 months is the same as the second-best student scholar in the class for the whole year. How big is the annual scholarship to be the first and second-best student of the class?

Result

a =  2100
b =  1400

Solution:


a+b = 3500
8/12*a = b

a+b = 3500
8a-12b = 0

a = 2100
b = 1400
