first, you know Dave gets the rest, that's [1-(what the other three get)] times 100

we have what Al and Bob get. what Carl gets is their average which is: \[{1/10 + 1/5 \over 2} = {3/10 \over 2}=3/20\]

just add what the three get: 3/20+1/10+1/5=0.45. finally, Dave share is 1-0.45=0.55.. in dollars, he gets 0.55*100= $55
