**Reiny**, Monday, October 1, 2012 at 10:24pmClass A raised 20 x 12 or $240

Class B raised 26 x 1.5 x 12 = $468

total raised = $708

split the 708 into 3 parts

give one shelter two of those parts, and the other shelter one part

708/3 = 236

shelter 1 gets 2 x 236 = $472

shelter 2 gets 1 x 236 = $236
