Max and John total portion is 55%.Steadyberry wrote:Hi pls help. This question is from eph preparing for psle maths.

A pie chart shows how a sum of money was shared among four men. (Sorry have problem posting the pie chart).

Max 25% of pie chart

John 30% of pie chart

Bobby unknown %

Ivan unknown %

Ivan's share was 70% more than Bobby's share. If the sum of money was $21600, how much money did Ivan get?

Thanks

Therefore Ivan and Bobby total portion is 45% . (100% - 55%)

Total amount of Ivan and Bobby =45% of $21600 = $9720

Ivan is 70% more than Bobby, that can mean if Bobby is 10u, Ivan will be 10u + 7u = 17u

10u + 17u = $9720

27u = $9720

u = 360

Ivan gets = 17u = 17(360) = $6120##
