To Find The Value Of Prize

Asked by  | 1st Nov, 2012, 11:27: PM

Expert Answer:

Let value of first prize be x

Value of second prize = 5x/6

Value of third prize = 4/5 * 5x/6 = 2x/3

x + 5x/6 + 2x/3 = 150

6x/6 + 5x/6 + 4x/6 = 150

15x/6 = 150

x = 60

Therefore,

Value of first prize is 60.

Value of second prize is 50.

Value of third prize is 40.
