Remuneration

Total remuneration for workers is 47 000 CZK. The second worker received 20% more than the first and third 4000 CZK less than a second employee. How many CZK each received?

Result

a =  15000
b =  18000
c =  14000

Solution:

a+b+c=47000
b = 1.20 a
c = b - 4000

a+b+c = 47000
1.2a-b = 0
b-c = 4000

a = 15000
b = 18000
c = 14000
