Let the selling price of the 1st ring be $ x.

So, the Price of 2nd ring= $(x+50)

And the price of 3rd ring=&(x+50-600)=$(x-550)

Also total price=$1750

∴ x+x+50+x-550=1750
∴3x-500=1750
∴3x=1750+500
∴3x=2250
∴x=2250/3
∴x=750

∴Price of 1st ring=x= $750
Price of 2nd ring=x+50=750+50= $800
Price of 3rd ring=x-550=750-550= $200
