Well, I'm going to assume that the amount they get is proportional to the amount of money they put in.

Person A put in $30 and Person B put in $20. Total is $50.

So A would get (30/50)*4.8=2.88g

B gets (20/50)*4.8=1.92g

Check it by adding the two up:

2.88+1.92=4.8

Answer makes sense.

I would say, a real yen to quit smoking.

However, one put in $30 = 3/5 of the total , and the other put in $20, 2/5 of the total so - the first fellow gets 3/5 of the 4.8 grams = 2.88 grams. The second fellow gets 2/5 of the 4.8 grams = 1.92 grams

Check: 1.92 + 2.88 = 4.8 -

ok!

You need to make a percentage of money each person put in, then multiple your 4.8 by the percent each person "donated"
