The committee awarded twice as many$2,500 scholarships as $4,000 scholarships, and it awarded three times as many$1,250 scholarships as $2,500 scholarships. If a total of$37,500 was awarded in $1,250 scholarships , how many$4,000 scholarships were awarded ?

x: 4000 2x:2500 3(2x):1250

37500/1250 --> 30 thus 6x=30 --> x=5 thus 5 4000's were awarded.

x=3y, y=2z where x is # of 120 schols, y is # of 2500 schols and z is number of 4000 schols

1250x=37500 -->x=30 -->30=2*y -->30=2(3z) --> z=5
