Four people were paid bonuses, so each subsequent person received half as much as the previous one. How much did everyone receive if the company paid out a total of CZK 6,500?

Correct answer:

a =  800
b =  1200
c =  1800
d =  2700

Step-by-step explanation:

a + 1.5a + 1.5·1.5·a + 1.5·1.5·1.5·a=6500

a + 1.5·a + 1.5·1.5·a + 1.5·1.5·1.5·a=6500

8.125a = 6500

a = 6500/8.125 = 800

a = 800
