Sue = 280

Joan = 280 + 50 = 330

Greg = 330 - 70 = 260.

J=x
G=x-70
J=s+50
s=280
so j= 330
g=260
IMO B

Solution

Given:
• Greg’s weekly salary is \$70 less than Joan’s weekly salary
• Joan’s weekly salary is \$50 more than Sue’s weekly salary
• Sue earns \$280 per week

To find:
• The amount Greg earns per week

Approach and Working:
• G = J - \$70
• J = \$50 + S
• S = \$280
• So, J = \$50 + \$280 = \$330
• Therefore, G = \$330 - \$70 = \$260

Hence, the correct answer is Option B
