Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0She earns x as a writer and 3x as an actuary. When you add that you get 4x = 40000 + A, where A is her brother's salary, which is (3x)/2. When equation 4x=40 000 + (3x)/2 is solved by x, you get x=16 000. So her salary as an actuary is 3 * 16 000 = 48 000.
