jen,paula, and sarah spent the weekend decorating a neighbors house. They earned $500.00 between them. When it came to dividing the money, paula had worked three times harder than jen and sarah had worked twice as hard as paula. If the money was divided fairly and according to how hard each person worked, how much money did they each receive. Need an answer as soon as possible

P = 3J
S = 2P
S + J + P = 500
2P + P/3 + P = 500
10/3 P = 500
P = 150
You are right.
