The Ramsey's assets are to be divided among their three children Agnessa, Rebecka, and Cody in the ratio of 8 : 6 : 3. For full marks your answer(s) should be rounded to the nearest cent.
a) If Rebecka received $6,500 from the sale of securities, what amount should Cody receive?
b) What amount should Rebecka receive from the sale of her parents' boat for $24,000?

There 17 total parts. Cody gets 3 of those parts and Rebecka gets 6.
a) $6,500 = 6/17 X
Cody gets 3/17 X
Or you could say Cody gets half of what Rebecka gets.
That should give you a start.
