You must use a Let statement.

State the equation for the above situation

Solve Algebraicially

**Steve**, Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 10:47am1 - 1/3 - 1/4 - 1/4 = 1/6

so, 72000 is 1/6 of the total.

The total is thus 432,000

1/3 = 144,000

1/4 = 108,000

You can massage the answer to the required format.

**Michelle**, Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 12:41pmThanks. I figuired out the working, but not sure how to use the Let statement. Would it be correct to say

Let A = original scholarship amount

A = 1-1/3 -1/4-1/4 x72,000

A = 1/6 x 72 = 432,000

**Steve**, Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 1:55pmBetter would be

(1 - 1/3 - 1/4 - 1/4) A = 72000

1/6 A = 72000

A = 6*72000

or

A = 72000/(1 - 1/3 - 1/4 - 1/4)
