while shopping. jill spent six times as much as amy.if they spent a total of $84, how much did each person spend?

the 14 music club members each paid the same amount for dues.the club also earned $370 selling magazine subscriptions. they spent $600 to orangize a jazz festival. now thier bank account which stsrted a $0, is overdrawn by $10. how much did each memnber pay in dues?

jill is 6x, Amy is 1x
7x = $84 x= 12,
Jill $72, Amy $12.

x = amount in Dues
14 x + 370  600 = 10
14 x = 220
x = $15.71
It doesn't work out exact due to rounding of the penny. The club would have overdrawn by 10.06 in the account.
