x = $4000 scholarships 2x =$2500 scholarships
6X = $1250 scholarships 6X*1250 = 37500 6X=30 x=5 Manager Joined: 04 Oct 2006 Posts: 189 Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 1 [0], given: 0 ### Show Tags 26 Feb 2007, 17:55 Yes. 37500/1250 = 30 Total$1250 scholarships.

30 / 3 times as many $2500 scholarships = 10$2500 scholarships

10 / 2 (twice) as many $4000 scholarships = 5$4000 scholarships
