Hi

Bunuel,

When it is mentioned that twice A as much as B then it has to be A = 2B. If we consider x as the investment then it has be x+2x = 180. Other stocks value should be 120. Can you let me the relation.

Hi

msk0657,

Twice as much as A = other stocks

Let B = other stocks

2A = B

Total = 3 portion

180 / 3 = 60 = B = other stocks
