    ok, well what i did was divide 370 by 3 for the 3 people. i then got 123.3. 123.33 - 42 = 81.33. 123.33 + 83.33 = 204.66 370 - 204.66 = 165.34

    so basically i got Amir = 84.33 Mike = 123.33 Steven = 165.34

    I don't think that is right because when I added them I didn't get 370

    @ccswims That seems about right, but I don't think the problem is very realistic like you wrote/said
