Answer:

#$195#

Explanation:

Let #x# be the amount that Blata saved
Then #2x# is the amount Beremberas saved
And #x+60# be the amount Shimbash saved

If they saved #600# altogether, then the equation would look like below:
#x+2x+x+60=600#
#4x+60=600#
#4x=540#
#x=135#

Therefore, Shimbash saved #135+60=195#

Answer:

Shimbash saved #$195#

Explanation:

Let us assume, savings of Blata be #$x# , then the savings of

Berembaras as #$2 x# and savings of Shimbash as #$(x+60)#.

By given information , # x+2 x+(x+60)=600# or

#4 x +60=600 :. 4 x =600-60 or 4 x = 540 or x= 135#

#:. 2 x = 2*135=270 and x+60 = 135+60 =195#

Blata saved #$135 # , Berembaras saved #$270# and

Shimbash saved #$195# [Ans]
