1) is S is the avg salary then 1) says (S-5)M is the salary of the managers

2) says (S+15)D is the salary of the Directors

together

total salary S(D+M)=(S-5)M+(s+15)D

you get 5M=15D or M=3D

C

directors average 15k+
managers 5k-

so average is 10k
ths directors make 25k on average and managers 5k

note 5k as a unit increment

so directors make 3 units more than the average and managers make 1 unit less

Now it gets really tricky

since managers r only 1 unit away from the average and directors 3 that means they are divided in 75:25 ratio
