three men and their wives were given $5400. the wives together received $2400. sue had $200 more than jan, and ellen had 200 more then sue. who was married to whom?

asked by j
  1. s = j+200
    e = s + 200
    j+s+e = 24
    j+j+200+j+400 = 3j+600=2400
    jan got 600
    sue got 800
    ellen got 1000

    adds up to 2400

    The men got 1000 each.

    All the wives are married to their husbands.
