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
