Divide 286 into four parts such that the first part increased by 1,the second decreased by 2 the third multiplied by 3 and the fourth divided by 4 will

We can divide 286 into w,x,y and z. We know that w+1=x-2=3y=z/4 So, we make all of them into terms of x. w=x-2-1=x-3 x=x y=x-2/3 z=4x-8

and we know that w+x+y+z=286. so, x-3+x+x-2/3+4x-8=286. but x-2 is not divisible by 3, so, make 3 a common denominator and multiply 286 by 3 so, 3x-9/3 + 3x + x-2/3 + 12-24/3 = 858. And that equals to 19x-35=858 19x=893 x=47. so, w=47-3=44 so, y=47-2/3= 15 so,z=47*4-8= 180
