fran and winston have a combined income of $80000. one quarter of winstons income is equal to one sixth of fans income. how much does each person make?
One quarter of Winston's income is one sixth of Fans income.
This means that Winstons income is 4/6 of Fan's income or 2/3 of Fan's income, so the total income is 1 and 2/3 of Fan's income and is equal to 80000 dollars.
so Fan's income is 80000/(1 and 2/3) = $48,000, and Winston's income is 2/3 of that, or $32,000.
