Here is the question. Sal, Martin, and Gloria are partners in a welding business. Because of the differences in their contributions, it is decided that Golria's share of the profits will be one-and-a-half times as much as Sal's share, and that Martin's share will be twice as much as Gloria's share. How should a profit of $48,200.00 be divided?
If I could only find out what Sal's portion is then I know that would be multiplied by 1.5 and that would give me Goloria's portion which I would multiply by 2 which would give me Martin's portion then add Sal plus Gloria plus Martin should equal $48,200.00. However the most important variable I need to solve for I don't know how to set up the equation. If someone would be as kind as to break this down step by step showing me what to write in algebra form I would really appreciate it. Thanks again.
