Because 36 seconds is 18 times more than 2 seconds we also multiply the distance traveled by 18, 100*18=1800, which does not appear in the answers.

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?

B. $1,820
C. $1,900
D. $2,180
E. $2,200
F. None of the above
The correct answer is A.
In the current agreement Dana receives 10% of $6600, which is $6600*10/100=$660. If the profits were divided equally between the three partners she would have received a third which is $6600*1/3=$2200. Therefore she would have made $2200-$660= $1540 more in the second case.
