5/17 * x = 2500

5x = 2500 * 17

x = 42500/5

Therefore, x = 8500

First Friend's share = 5/17 = 2500

Second friend's share = 1 - 5/17 ( As 1 means whole)

1 - 5/17 = 12/17

Second friends share = 12/17 * 8500 = 12 * 8483 = 101796

Hope i helped u.

We know that 17 is representing total value and "5" is representing 2500. Do the proportions

Now the next person must have got

2.The Other Person got

DONE!
