Alex, Justin and Roy shared a sum of money. Alex received 1/2 of the total share of Justin and Roy. Justin received 1/3 of the total share of Alex and Roy. If Roy received $180 more than Justin, how much was the sum of money they shared?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A + J + R = x

 

A = x/3

 

J = x/4

 

R = x/4 + 180

 

x = x/3 + x/4 + (x/4 + 180)

 

x = 1080  smiley
