If Peter picked 240% more plums than Roger and Peter picked 6800 how many did both pick altogether

  • Math -

    Let 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.
