Crowns

1180 crowns are divided into three people: A got 20% less than B and C by 15% more than B. How many got A, B, and C?

Correct answer:

A =  320
B =  400
C =  460

Step-by-step explanation:


A+B+C = 1180
A = (1-20/100)•B
C = (1+15/100)•B

A+B+C = 1180
100A-80B = 0
115B-100C = 0

A = 320
B = 400
C = 460
