I am having problem solving the following question.
Q)A sum of money is divided among three persons X, Y and Z in the ratio 10 : 7 :5. If Y gets $14 more than Z, how much will X get and what is the total sum of money ?
Solution:
sum of ratios=22
Let total amount =$x
Ys share= (7/22) * x
Z share = (5/22) * x
after this the solution i cant understand but i will share it here for any help..
14 should have been added to Ys share but in the solution its added to Z s share.
i need guidence from here onward to find the value of Xs share.
