## Problem

Four friends do yardwork for their neighbors over the weekend, earning $15, 20, 25,$ and $40,$ respectively. They decide to split their earnings equally among themselves. In total how much will the friend who earned $40$ give to the others?

## Solution

Since the amount of sugar is twice the amount of lemon juice, Luka uses $3\cdot2=6$ cups of sugar.

Since the amount of water is $4$ times the amount of sugar, he uses $6\cdot4=\boxed{\text{(E) }24}$ cups of water.
