Work backwards
Yiling and Ali---(1+3/4) x4=7
Sally---- (7+3/4) x 3 + 3/4= 24

Hi,

Can you explain why 1+3/4 in step 1 is multiplied with 4. similarly in step 2?

Hi,

Can you explain why 1+3/4 in step 1 is multiplied with 4. similarly in step 2?

Because if we consider the number of units for both Yiling and Ali, the total number of units should be 4 units.
Thus, 1 unit----1+3/4=1.75
4units -----1.75x 4= 7

Hence, consider Yiling +Ali+ Sally----4 parts
Then, 1 part----7+3/4 =7.75
Since we want to find out what Sally has,
then 3 parts---- 7.75 x 3= 23.25
and 23.25 + 3/4= 24
