# Two institutions

Let the numbers are x, y, z be the cash awards for Resourcefulness, Competence, and Determination respectively

4x + 3y + 2z = 37000 …… (i)

Also,

5x + 3y + 4z = 47000 …… (ii)

Again,

x + y + z = 12000 …… (iii) A X = B

|A| = 4(3 – 4) – 3(5 – 4) + 2(5 – 3)

= 4(– 1) – 3(1) + 2(2)

= – 4 – 3 + 4

= – 3

Hence, the unique solution given by x = A – 1B

C11 = (– 1)1 + 1 (3 – 4) = – 1

C12 = (– 1)1 + 2 (5 – 4) = – 1

C13 = (– 1)1 + 3 (5 – 3) = 2

C21 = (– 1)2 + 1 (3 – 2) = – 1

C22 = (– 1)2 + 2 (4 – 2) = 2

C23 = (– 1)2 + 3 (4 – 3 ) = – 1

C31 = (– 1)3 + 1 (12 – 6) = 6

C32 = (– 1)3 + 2 (16 – 10) = – 6

C33 = (– 1)3 + 3 (12 – 15) = – 3

Adj A = X = A – 1 B = X = X =  = Hence, x = 4000, y = 5000 and z = 3000

Thus, The value X, Y, Z describes the amount of prizes per person for Resourcefulness, Competence and Determination.
