  1. Kofi got 3x
    Anna got 5x
    3x+5x = 4,650,000
    x = 581,250
    Kofi got 1,743,750

    or,

    k + 5/3 k = 4650000
    k = 3/8 * 4650000
    k = 1743750

  2. The 4,650,000 is not the total , it is Ama's share, so
    5x = 4650000
    x = 930,000

    so Kofi's share
    = 3x
    = 2,790,000
