Q:
# Peter and his four brothers combined all of their money to buy a video game. If 30% of the total money is Peter's, and $18.00 of the total money is Peter's, how much do all five brothers have combined?

Accepted Solution

A:

Let the total amount combined be 100% and at $x.

Then, Peter's contribution of $18 represents 30% of $x.

Therefore,

30% of $xΒ -----> $18

100% of $x ---> $x

Then,

x= (100*18)/30 = $60

Then, Peter's contribution of $18 represents 30% of $x.

Therefore,

30% of $xΒ -----> $18

100% of $x ---> $x

Then,

x= (100*18)/30 = $60
