Got a problem here, if it doesn't make any sense then I probably misread it...

Tara makes X over Y money. James makes X - Y over Y money. Sara makes 2/3 the money Tara makes. If you pool their money together, how much do you have?

Results 1 to 5 of 5

If I am not very wrong than

X is the profit Tara earns on investing Y amount of money

(X-Y) is the profit earned by James over the same amount of money

2X/3 is the profit earned by Sara for Y amount of money invested

``````````````````````````````````````````````````

The total money in the money we have in the end

=*=*(Y + X)+ ((X-Y) +Y) + (2X/3 + Y)**8X/3 + 2Y**
