Mr.lucky won the lottery,so he decided that he would split the money with his 4 kids.

His older son was givin 50% of the winnings. 25% was givin oto his daughter Jane. Gary would get 20% and Jodi would get $700.

How much did Mr. Lucky win in the lottery.

50 + 25 + 20 = 95

Jodi received 5% of the winnings.

Now, let x equal the total that Mr. Lucky won.

0.05x = 700

Solve for x.

We'll be glad to check your answer.
