Spencer, Nigel and Greta shared the cost of a massage chair for their mother.

Spencer paid 2/9 of the total cost of the massage chair. Nigel paid 5/8 of what Spencer

paid. Altogether, Spencer and Nigel paid $793. How much did Greta pay for the

massage chair?

Spencer paid = 2x/9

Nigel paid = 5/8(2x/9)

2x/9 + 5/8(2x/9) = 793

**x = 2196**

Hence, Greta paid **$1403**
