Question

Answer

Note : Again, looks for ratio of Peter in both cases are 2 and 7. So it is good to assume Peter has 14u as 2 and 7 are the factors for 14u.

If Peter had $ 14u, Gary had $ 14u/2 or $ 7u and June had $14u/7 * 2= $ 4u.

Given 7u – 4u = 135

3u = 135

u = 45

14u = 530

Peter saved $ 530.

Note : Look for the Peter ratio in both situation which is 2 and 3 respectively. So it is good to start with assuming Peter had $ 6u dollar since the common factors for 6 are 2 and 3.

If Peter had $ 6u, Gary had $ 6u/2*5 or $ 15u and June had $ 6u/3 * 4  or $ 8u.
15u – 8u = 112

7u = 112

u = 16

6u = 96

Peter had $96.
