Easy Money (Posted on 2005-03-28) Difficulty: 2 of 5
This week's lottery was won by a syndicate of 10 people, between them they won a total of $2,775,000. They all contributed different amounts into the syndicate and their winnings were calculated against their contributions.

If the amounts were all different but the cash step between each step remained uniform, what amount did the 2nd highest winner get, given that the sum of the lowest three amounts was equal to the sum of the highest two?
