Hi Guys,

I am stuck with this elementary school maths problem sum which looks relatively easy but i just simply cannot solve it !

Algebra method cannot be used. The school only allows me to use other methods other than algebra =(

Here goes the question :

John , Peter and Alex bought a watch. Alex paid 1/4 of what Peter and John Paid for. John Paid 1/5 of what Peter and Alex paid. If Peter paid $56 more than John, how much is the watch?

Please help !
