Al saves pennies. Al agreed to give 3/5 of his pennies to Bev if she would give 3/5 of what she got from Al to Carl and if Carl in turn would give 3/5 of what he got from Bev to Dani. Bev, Carl, and Dani received 189 pennies. How many pennies did Al have initially?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let x be the amount Al started with x*3/5=amount Bev has x*3/5*3/5=amount Carl has x*3/5*3/5*3/5=amount Dani has so 189=x*3/5*3/5*3/5 x=875
