the 14 music club members each paid the same amount for dues.the club also earned \$370 selling magazine subscriptions. they spent \$600 to orangize a jazz festival. now thier bank account which stsrted a \$0, is overdrawn by \$10. how much did each memnber pay in dues?

jill is 6x, Amy is 1x

7x = \$84 x= 12,

Jill \$72, Amy \$12.

------------------

x = amount in Dues
14 x + 370 - 600 = -10
14 x = 220
x = \$15.71

It doesn't work out exact due to rounding of the penny. The club would have overdrawn by 10.06 in the account.
