Symbolic Let original amount = x First: Red Cross got 1/3 x, left with 2/3 x Second: American Cancer Society got 4/7(2/3x), left with 3/7(2/3x) Third: Relay for Life got (3/7(2/3x)), so left with (3/7(2/3x)) $12 = (3/7(2/3x) So, now just solve, go ahead, well wait Exactly how many of our students feel, so what do we do?
