A department manager

Post Sat Aug 25, 2012 9:51 pm
A department manager distributed a number of pens, pencils, and pads among the staff in the department, with each staff member receiving x pens, y pencils, and z pads. How many staff members were in the department?

1. The number of pens pencils, and pads that each staff member received were in the ration 2:3:4, respectively.
2. The manager distributed a total of 18 pens, 27 pencils, and 36 pads.

Thanks
