Charity or Party? (Posted on 2003-03-23) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A number of us went out together to a charity fete one day. Our party consisted of four different professional groups, namely 25 writers, 20 doctors, 18 dentists and 12 bank employees. We spent altogether Rs. 1330.

Later it was found that 5 writers spent as much as 4 doctors, that 12 doctors spent as much as 9 dentists and that 6 dentists spent as much as 8 bank employees.

[Or, in other words: "A Writer spent (4/5) times the amount spent by a Doctor, a Doctor spent (3/4) times the amount spent by a Dentist and a Dentist spent (4/3) times the amount spent by a Bank Employee].

How much did each of the four professional groups spend ?
