Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let the deposit in Bank of Chance be X then deposit in Mar. Bank = 2X Total deposit till now = X+2X = 3X Thus, deposit in Uthopian Bank = 20 % of total = (20/100) 3X = 0.2 * 3X = 0.6X Total deposit = 3X + 0.6X = 3.6X = 900 So X = 900/3.6 Now deposit in Uthopian Bank = 0.6X = 0.6 * 900 / 3.6 = 6 * 900 / 36 = 900/6 = 150$
