Ariel, Alex, and Dana form a business agreement in which Ariel receives 20% of profits, Alex receives 70% of profits, and Dana receives the remaining 10%. The total profits for the month of June were $6,600. How much more would Dana receive if the profits were divided equally?
F. None of these
The correct answer is (A).
Per the current agreement, Dana receives 10% of $6,600, which is $6,600*0.10 = $660.
If the profits were divided equally among all three people, Dana would have received one-third of the total profits, which is $6,600/3 = $2,200.
Therefore, she would have made $2,200 – $660 = $1,540 more if the profits were divided equally.
