Cat = u

[Gup] [6u] = 3472

[Gup] =1897

Therefore [5u] = 3472-1897

Solve u and add to 3472 and you shd get [gup]+[6u]+, ie, total fish

Since they both spent the same amount each week,Jerico wrote:

Hi, can someone pls help? Thank u.

it means that Brenda saved $5 more each week.

(a) $60 - $20 = $40

40 / 5 = 8

It took Brenda 8 weeks to save $60

(b) $60 / 8 = $7.50

7.50 + 12 = 19.50

Brenda's weekly pocket money is $19.50

In the end, (A:B:C -> 4:1:2)

A -> 8u

B -> 2u

C -> 4u

In the beginning

A -> 8u - 60

B -> 1u

C -> 8u

8u - 60 + 1u + 8u = 297

17u = 357

1u = 21

8u - 60 = 108
