$24000 is split between Ahmed, Brian, and Charles in the ratio 3:4:5. How much does each one receive

$24000/ (3 + 4 + 5)= 2000

6000:8000:10000

So **Ahmed gets $6000, Brian gets $8000, and Charles gets $10000**.

Hope it helps!

Since the ratio is 3:4:5, this means that the ratio is in the form of 3 parts : 4 parts : 5 parts.

Adding 3 parts to 4 parts to 5 parts, we get 12 parts.

Now, let's figure what each part is worth: Divide $24,000.00 into 12 parts, you get $2000.00 per part.

Ahmed, with his 3 parts get 3 x $2000.00 = $6000.00.

Brian, with his 4 parts get 4 x $2000.00 = $8000.00.

Charles, with his 5 parts get 5 x $2000.00 = $10,000.00.
