£4200 shared equally amoung 10 persons would be £420 each.

 

3 managers share 40% of the £4200:

   0.40 x £4200  =  £1680

   £1680 / 3  =  £560 each.

 

7 others share 60% of the £4200:

  0.60 x £4200  =  £2520 

  £2520 / 7  =  £360 each                          (what he actually will get)

 

He thought that he would get 25% more if he got £420:

  x + 0.25x  =  £420

        1.25x  =  £420

              x  =  £336                                    (what he thought that he would get)
