# Strawberries 16743

For picking strawberries, the girls divided the reward of CZK 15,100 according to their performance. Lucka received CZK 400 more than Šárka, Jana half of what Lucka and Šárka got together, and Kamila CZK 500 less than Jana. How many CZK did each girl get? (Solution and procedure word problem)

j =  3900
k =  3400
l =  4100
s =  3700

### Step-by-step explanation:

l=400+s
j = (l+s)/2
k = j - 500
j+k+s+l=15100

l-s = 400
2j-l-s = 0
j-k = 500
j+k+l+s = 15100

Pivot: Row 1 ↔ Row 2
2j-l-s = 0
l-s = 400
j-k = 500
j+k+l+s = 15100

Row 3 - 1/2 · Row 1 → Row 3
2j-l-s = 0
l-s = 400
-k+0.5l+0.5s = 500
j+k+l+s = 15100

Row 4 - 1/2 · Row 1 → Row 4
2j-l-s = 0
l-s = 400
-k+0.5l+0.5s = 500
k+1.5l+1.5s = 15100

Pivot: Row 2 ↔ Row 3
2j-l-s = 0
-k+0.5l+0.5s = 500
l-s = 400
k+1.5l+1.5s = 15100

Row 4 + Row 2 → Row 4
2j-l-s = 0
-k+0.5l+0.5s = 500
l-s = 400
2l+2s = 15600

Pivot: Row 3 ↔ Row 4
2j-l-s = 0
-k+0.5l+0.5s = 500
2l+2s = 15600
l-s = 400

Row 4 - 1/2 · Row 3 → Row 4
2j-l-s = 0
-k+0.5l+0.5s = 500
2l+2s = 15600
-2s = -7400

s = -7400/-2 = 3700
l = 15600-2s/2 = 15600-2 · 3700/2 = 4100
k = 500-0.5l-0.5s/-1 = 500-0.5 · 4100-0.5 · 3700/-1 = 3400
j = 0+l+s/2 = 0+4100+3700/2 = 3900

j = 3900
k = 3400
l = 4100
s = 3700
