7,500 / 22,500 dollars

Work Step by Step

We are told that a 30,000 dollar scholarship is divided between two students and one receives three times as much as the other. Therefore, we can set this up as an equation. $x+3x=4x=30000$ Divide both sides by 4. $x=7500$ Therefore, the student who receives the smaller part of the scholarship receives 7500 dollars. We can multiply this by 3 to determine the size of the bigger part. $7500\times3=22500$ dollars
