  1. John´s part = 150

    Mark James part as J

    Ratio is:

    3 : 2 : x

    John´s part / James part = 150 / J = 3 / 2

    150 / J = 3 / 2

    Multiply both sides by J

    150 = 3 J / 2

    Multiply both sides by 2

    300 = 3 J

    3 J = 300

    J = 300 / 3

    J = 100

    James part = 100

    Mark Chris part as C

    Chriss part = 500 - ( John´s part + James part )

    C = 500 - ( 150 + J ) = 500 - ( 150 + 100 ) = 500 - 250 = 250

    Chris part = 250

    Ratio is:

    3 : 2 : x

    John´s part / Chris part = 3 / x = 150 / 250 = 50 ∙ 3 / 50 ∙ 5 = 3 / 5

    3 / x = 3 / 5

    x = 5

    OR

    James part / Chris part = 2 / x = 2 / 5

    2 / x = 2 / 5

    x = 5

    Three men shared 500 in the ratio of 3:2:5

  2. John : James : Chris = 3:2:k = 3x:2x:kx
    given: 3x = 150
    x = 50

    also 3x + 2x + kx = 500
    x(3+2+k) = 500
    50(5+k) = 500
    5+k = 10
    k = 5

    the split up is
    John : James : Chris = 3:2:k = 3x:2x:kx
    = 150 : 100 : 250
