The answer was not correct. I'm sorry if you misunderstood, the question asks how many coins Al had to begin with.

If only Dani received 189 pennies, then Al started with 875. If all 3 of them combined received 189 pennies, Al had 315

875. (27/125) P = 189. P = 875

let 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

The wording of the problem is retarded. It makes it look like all 3 combined got 189.

3/5x + 3/5(3/5x) + 3/5[3/5(3/5x)]=x+189 is my representation correct??
