Let Jon received 2x(smaller amount)

Jack received = 4x

2x = 1256

⇒x = 628

Thus 4x = 628X4 = 2512

So jack received $2512.

Jack received = 4x

2x = 1256

⇒x = 628

Thus 4x = 628X4 = 2512

So jack received $2512.

mr.jeff has amount =y

share between jon and jack is in yhe ratio 4:2

mr.jeff has amount =>4x+2x=y

=>6x=y

jon share =>1256=2x

=>x=1256/2

=>x=628

jack share =>4x=4*628

=>4x=2512

therefore jack got share=2512
