To help raise funding for attending a science competition out of town, John and his three friends sell candies in their neighborhood. The average of each person’s sale is \$200. John’s sale is 1/3 of Steve’s sale, Steve’s sale is 1/4 of Paul’s sale, and Charlie's’ sale is 2/3 of Paul’s sale. How much is each person’s sale?

1. Henry

John's sale = \$X.
Steve's sale = \$3X.
Paul's sale = \$12X.
Charlie's sale = \$8X.

x + 3x + 12x + 8x = 4*\$200.
X = ?.
3X = ?.
12X = ?.
8X = ?.

Thanks Henry
