Let J = Jan's salary, Y = Jani's salary, and S = Sam's salary:

J/Y = 3/4 Therefore 4J/3 = Y [Jan and Jani's salary ratio = 3/4]

J/S = 2/3; Therefore 3J/2 = S [Jan and Sam's salary ratio = 2/3]

J + Y + S = $1800 [Total salary = $1800]

Substitute:

J + Y + S = $1800

J + 4J/3 + 3J/2 = 1800

23J/6 = $1800

J = $1800*6/23

J = $469.57

Find Y and S:

Y = 4J/3 = 4*($469.57)/3 = $626.09

S = 3J/2 = 3*($469.57)/2 = $704.35

Check:

J + Y + S = $1800

$469.57 + $626.09 + 704.26 = $1800
