  1. $X = Amt. raised.

    X/3 = Amt. for med. supplies.

    1/4(2x/3)=2x/12 = x/6 = Amt. for tents.

    (2/3)(X-x/3-x/6) = (2/3)(X-3x/6) =
    (2/3)(3x/6) = = 6x/18 = x/3 = Amt. for water purification.

    x/3 = $400,
    X = $1200 = Amt. raised.

    x/3=1200 / 3 = $400 for med. supplies.

    x/6 = 1200 / 6 = $200 for tents.

    Bal = 1200 - 1000 = $200.
