8x = 28000
x = 3500
16*3500 = 56000

A. $48,000
B. $50,000
C. $52,000
D. $54,000
E. $56,000

Ratio of
D : M : N is
3x: 5x: 8x
3x + 5x + 8x = 16x

N gets \(\frac{8x}{16x}=\frac{1}{2}\) of total, \(T\)

N gets $28,000
$28,000 = \(\frac{1}{2}T\)
\(T\)
= $56,000

Answer E

Based on the ratio values -
Dan + Matt = Nicole
So Total = 2*Nicole = $56,000
