Amogh buys three items at the store for exactly Rs 100. The second item costs half as much as the first item, and the third item is half as much as the second.
How much did each one cost?

Let the last item cost X
So the second item would cost 2X
And the first would cost 4X

Total is 4X+2X+X=100
7X =100
X= 100/7 = 14.2857

Ans.: 57.1428; 28.5714; 14.2857
