The sum of the salaries of Tim, Tom and Max is equal to \$7500. Tim receives 2/5of the total sum of the salaries, whereas Tom and Max receive 1/5 and 2/5 of the total sum of the salaries. Find out the salary of all of them.

According to the question,
The sum of the salaries of Tim, Tom and Max = \$7500 …..(i)
Tim receives 2/5 of the total sum of the salaries ……(ii)
∴ (2/5)*(7500) = 2*7500/5 = \$3000
∴ Tim receives a salary of \$3000.
Tom receives 1/5 of the total sum of the salaries ………………….(iii)
∴ (1/5)*(7500) = 7500/5 = \$1500
∴ Tom receives a salary of \$1500.
Max receive 2/5 of the total sum of the salaries ………………..(iv)
∴ (2/5)*(7500) = \$3000
