**Reiny**, Monday, November 26, 2012 at 6:36pmLet the number picked by Roger be x

then the number picked by Peter = x + 2.4x = 3.5x

so 3.5x = 6800

x = 2000

So together they picked 8800

check:

240 % of Rogers = 2.4(2000) = 4800

So Peter picked as much as Roger plus 240% more

= 2000+4800 = 6800

BTW, this is a poorly worded question.
