1/8 of a sum of prize money was divided equally among 4 individual players.

The remainder was divided among 14 group players. If each group player

received $20, how much money did each individual player receive?

The remainder of the money is 14*20 = $280.

This is also equal to 7/8 of the prize money. If 280 is 7/8, and we must find 1/8, we divide 280/7 = 40. 

Each individual player received $10.

Let sum of prize money be $p.

--> 1/8P is divided equally for 4 individual player

So, 7P/8 is divided to group player

 


7P/8 * 1/4 = 20

P = 20 * 2 * 8 

P = $320

1/8P = 320/8 = $40

Now, we have to divide $40 equally among 4

individual player 

* 40/4 = $10 each

Individual player receive $10 each.
