Hi Jessica,

Following is my worked solution:

A = B
C - A = 150
C = D = (1/4)
A + B + E = (1/2)
2A + E = (1/2)
(1/4) - A = 150
A = (1/4) - 150
2A = (1/2) - 300
(1/2) - 300 + E = (1/2)
E = 300

========

Trust this helps.

Do let me know again if this is different from your <Answerkey> or if there's further clarification.

Cheers,
Edward

Hi Jessica,

Another alternative to my earlier solution (which can be easily understood) is as follows:

C = A + 150

Since C = D and A = B, we have ...
D = B + 150

C + D = A + B + 300

But C + D = A + B + E

A + B + E = A + B + 300

Hence, E = \$300

========

Trust this helps.

Cheers,
Edward

Hi,

Another way to solve this (tested this on my students who found this easiest to understand).

Let C's amount be \$x.
Total amount is \$4x (given that Clara represents 1/4 of the pie chart).

C and D have \$x each, or 2x in total.
A and B have \$(x-150) each, or (2x-300) in total
Eddie's amount remains unknown, E.

Hence, you get

2x + (2x-300) + E = 4x (sum of all the children's money = total in pie chart)
4x - 300 + E = 4x
Therefore, E = \$300

Regards,
