Ken, Leo, and Mandy donated some money. Ken donated 1/4 of the total amount Leo and Mandy donated. Mandy donated 4/11 of the total amount of money that Ken and Leo donated. Leo donated $37.50 more than Ken. Express the amount of money Leo donated as a decimal if he had $100 initially.

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

Ken donated ====> **x**

Leo donated ====> **37.50 + x**

Mandy donated ==> **4/11(37.50 + 2x)**

Leo + Mandy = 37.5 + x + 4/11(37.5 + 2x)

**37.5 + x + 4/11(37.5 + 2x) = 4x **("4x" is 4 X Ken's donation)

**x = 22.5**

**So, Leo donated $60 out of $100, and that is 0.6 **
