let community reaction center got = x

Hospital = 2x

Volunteer fire company = 2x/3.

x + 2x + 2x/3 = 550

3x + 6x + 2x = 1650

11x = 1650

x = 150.

Let Hospital be H
Let Community recreation be CR
Let Fire company be FC

Given :-
H = 2CR
H = 3FC
And \$550 = H + CR + FC

Approach

Since we are given 3 terms and 1 eqn we will equate all to one variable.

We know the relationship of H with the other two variables

Solution

550 = H + H/2 + H/3
550 = 11H/6
H = 300

Thus CR = H/2 = \$150

(D)

let community recreation get = x
hospital = 2x
fire co = 2x/3

x+2x+2x/3 = 550
x = 150
IMO D
