A patients hospice cost stay 1/4 as much as his visit to the emergency room. His home nursing cost twice as much as his hospice stay. If his total healthcare bill was $140,000 how much did his home nursing cost. The answer the book came up with was 40,000 would someone break this down for me cause im lost the way the book explained it

let x = cost of visit to emergency room then hospice cost x/4 home nursing = 2 * x/4 = x/2 form an equation: x + x/4 + x/2 = 140,000 solving for x 1 . 75 x = 140,000 x = 140,000 /1.75 = 80,000 dollars = emegency room cost home nursing = x/2 = 40,000 dollars
