- Homework Statement
- Andreas, Isla and Paulo share some money in the ratios 3:2:5. The total amount of money that Isla and Paulo receive is £76 more than the amount of money that Andreas receives. Andreas buys a video game for £48.50 with some of his share of the money. Work out how much money Andreas has left from his share of the money when he has bought the video game.

- Relevant Equations
- 3+2+5 = 10 parts

So 7 parts is worth £76 more than 3 parts which means that

4 parts = £76

So 1 part = £19

Therefore Andreas gets £57, Isla gets £38 and Paulo gets £95.

So Andreas has £57 - £48.50 = £8.50 left

Is this correct please?
