Kate, Nora, and Devi shared a sum of money. Kate received 24 dollars and Nora received x dollars more than Kate. Devi received 2x dollars more than kate

a) Find the sum of money shared in terms of x.

my answer: total = 24 + (x+24) + 2(24)b) Nora received $30. Find the total sum of money shared by the three girls. my answer: 24 + 30 + 48 = 102 Re: How much each recieved Johnx said: Kate, Nora, and Devi shared a sum of money. Kate received 24 dollars and Nora received x dollars more than Kate. Devi received 2x dollars more than kate a) Find the sum of money shared in terms of x. my answer: total = 24 + (x+24) + 2(24) You've got Kat and Nora right, but Devi would receive 24 + 2x (that's 2x more than Kate). And so the sum $$S$$ would be: $$\displaystyle S=(24)+(24+x)+(24+2x)=72+3x=3(24+x)$$ Johnx said: b) Nora received$30. Find the total sum of money shared by the three girls.

my answer: 24 + 30 + 48 = 102

If Nora received \\$30, then to find $$x$$, we may write:

$$\displaystyle 24+x=30\implies x=6$$

And so:

$$\displaystyle S=3(24+6)=90$$

Does that make sense?
