Bonuses

Five employees of the company were paid bonuses so that each successor received a 550 USD less than the previous employee. How much did everyone get, if a total of USD 11,000 has paid?

Correct result:

a =  3300
b =  2750
c =  2200
d =  1650
f =  1100

Solution:


a+b+c+d+f = 11000
b = a-550
c = b-550
d = c-550
f = d-550

a+b+c+d+f = 11000
a-b = 550
b-c = 550
c-d = 550
d-f = 550

a = 3300
b = 2750
c = 2200
d = 1650
f = 1100
