Will, Micah and Sue went to dinner. Will paid 1/3 of the dinner bill. Micah and Sue paid in the ratio 2:5. If sue paid $6 more than Will, how much did the dinner cost?

w+m+s=dc
w=dc/3
s=w+6
m/2=s/5 or m=2s/5
dc/3 +2s/5+s=dc
but s=dc/3 +6
dc/3+2/5 (dc/3 +6)+dc/3 +6=dc
check all that, and solve for dc
