Amanda, Chen, and Mark shared some money in the ratio 2: 4: 9. Mark got £84 more than Amanda. How much money did Chen get?

Amanda = 2 parts( 2x) , Chen = 4 parts( 4x), Mark = 9 parts ( 9x).

Mark got £84 more than Amanda => 9x = 2x +84

=>9x -2x = 84

=> 7x = 84

=> x = 12

Amanda => 2x = 2 x 12 = £44

Chen => 4x = 4 x 12= £48
