Hello, burgess!
A sum of money is to be distributed among A, B, C, D in the proportion of 5 : 2 : 4 : 3.
If C gets $1000 more than D, what is the share of A?
We are given: . $\displaystyle \begin{array}{cccc} A&B&C&D \\ \hline 5a&2a&4a&3a\end{array}$
We are told that: .$\displaystyle C \:=\: D + 1000 \quad\Rightarrow\quad 4a \:=\:3a+1000$
Can you finish?
