    t is the standard for measuing the rest: c = t+30 h = t+30+20 = t+50

    amount times cost = total t(1.05) + (t+30)(1.35) + (t+50)(2.25) = 202.50

    multiply by 100 to get rid of decimals 105t +135t +135(30) + 225t +225(50) = 20250

    465t = 20250 - 135(30) - 225(50)

    \[t = \frac{20250 - 135(30) - 225(50)}{465}\]t

    105t +135t +135(30) + 225t +225(10) = 20250 465t = 20250 - 4050 - 2250 t = 13950/465 t = 30 c = 60 h = 40 are my new numbers :) 30(1.05) + 60(1.35) + 40(2.25) = 202.50 31.50 + 81.00 + 90.00 = 202.50 31.50 + 171.00 = 202.50 202.50 = 202.50....checks ;)
