1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Ok here is the problem: 100 loaves of bread are to be distributed such that the quantities form an arithmetric sequence, among 5 people. The first 2 together receive 1/7 of the remaining 3, together. How much (loaves and fractions) does each receive? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution So, I have this as the form: a1, a1+d, a1+2d, a1+3d, a1+4d Is that correct? How do I get d? Any help on solving this would be great. Thanks!
