Three workers

Three workers got paid for work. First earn € 50, the second € 100 and third € 60. For further work should receive together € 735. How do you divide that amount in order to be distributed in the same proportion as the first job?

Result

a =  175 Eur
b =  350 Eur
c =  210 Eur

Solution:

s=735/(50+100+60)=72=3.5 a=50 s=50 3.5=175 Eurs=735/(50+100+60)=\dfrac{ 7 }{ 2 }=3.5 \ \\ a=50 \cdot \ s=50 \cdot \ 3.5=175 \ \text{Eur}
b=100 s=100 3.5=350 Eurb=100 \cdot \ s=100 \cdot \ 3.5=350 \ \text{Eur}
c=60 s=60 3.5=210 Eurc=60 \cdot \ s=60 \cdot \ 3.5=210 \ \text{Eur}
