1. business A --- x , x in millions
business B --- 2x - 200
business C --- 2B - 200 = 2(2x-200) - 200

x + 2x-200 + 2(2x-200) - 200 = 1035

x +2x- 200 + 4x - 400 -200 = 1035
7x = 1835
x = 262.143 million

Check:
A pledged 262.143 million
B pledged 324.286 million
C pledged 448.571 million

262.143+324.286+448.571 = 1035

x+2x-20+2(2x-20)-200=1035
x+2x-20+4x-40-200=1035
7x=1035+20+40+200
7x=1295
x=185
Bus. A pledged \$185 million
Bus. B pledged 185x2=370-20=350 million
Bus. C pledged 350x2=700-200=500million
