In a charity event, 3 scouts Benny, Ray and Kathy raised $1459 altogether. Ray raised $296 less than Benny while Katy raised an amount 1/4 as much as Benny. How much money did Kathy raise?

We are looking for k .....so put things in terms of k

 

b = 4k

k          

r = b - 296   =   4k - 296                 summed, they equal 1459

 

4k  + k   + ( 4k-296) = 1459

k = 195                                                 b = 780     r = 484
