Men, women and children

On the trip went men, women and children in the ratio 2:3:5 by bus. Children pay 60 crowns and adults 150. How many women were on the bus when a bus was paid 4,200 crowns?

Result

z =  12

Solution:


60d + 150m + 150z = 4200
m = 2k
z = 3k
d= 5k

60d+150m+150z = 4200
2k-m = 0
3k-z = 0
d-5k = 0

d = 20
k = 4
m = 8
z = 12
