#1**+1 **

Jack and Paul shared the total cost of a present for their father. Jack paid $48 more than 2/11 of the cost of the present. The ratio of the amount paid by Jack to the amount paid by Paul was 1:3. How much more did Paul pay for the present than Jack?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jack's share = (2x/11) + 48

Paul's share = (9x/11) - 48

[(2x/11) + 48] / [(9x/11) - 48] = 1/3

**x = 704**

[(9x/11) - 48] - [(2x/11) +48] = **176**

Paul paid $**352** more than Jack.
