Dividing The Spoils


Dividing The Spoils After gathering 770 chestnuts, the three little girls divided them up so that their amounts were in the same proportion as their ages. As often as Mary took four chestnuts, Nellie took three, and for every six that Mary received, Susie took seven.

How many chestnuts did each girl get?
