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?

asked by Raphael
  1. 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 = ?.
