Three people win a prize of $x. If the prize is divided so that the first person gets half as much money as the second person and the third gets three times as much as the second person how much will each receive Let the 1st person get y dollars, the second gets 2y dollars and the last gets 6y dollars Altogether that is 9y dollars There is$x of prize

$$9y=x\\ y=\frac{x}{9}$$

So the first person gets  x/9 dollars, the second gets 2x/9 dollars and the last on gets 6x/9 dollars
