  1. So their profits should be divided in the ratio of
    9 : 7 : 4

    so X will get 9/20 x 4800
    Y will get 7/20 x 4800
    Z will get 4/20 x 4800

    I will let you do the 'button-pushing'

  3. X 9/20*4800= 2160
    So X should get $ 2160.00
    instead of $ 1600.00
    X is receiving 2160-1600= $560 less
