Let Sam worked = x hrs in a 7 days
Mark worked = 2x hr
Joe worked = 6x hr

S:M:J = 1:2:6

Mark's contribution = 2/(1+2+6)

Total amount earned = $252
Mark' Amount = 2/9*252 = $56
Mark's amount for 5 days = 5/7*56= $40

Ans D

S+M+J=$252/7 so we get per day.. (1)
S+M+J=$36 per day
M=2S… S=M/2..(2)
J=3M.. (3)
Substitute (2) and (3) in (1) and solve for M: M/2+3M+M=$36…..M=$8 per day, so in 5 days M will earn $40. Answer D

A. $24

D. $40
E. $50


We can let x = the hourly rate for each person, s = the number of hours Sam works per day, m = the number of hours Mark works per day, and j = the number of hours Joe works per day.

We are given that m = 2s and j = 3m = 3(2s) = 6s. Thus, in terms of s and x, we can create the following equation:

7sx + 7(2s)x + 7(6s)x = 252

7sx + 14sx + 42sx = 252

63sx = 252

sx = 4

We are asked for the amount of money earned by Mark in 5 days. In 5 days, Mark earns:

5(2s)x = 10sx = 10(4) = 40 dollars

Answer: D
