Start in square 'S' and end in square 'E' moving either horizontally or vertically in each move. Start by moving 2 squares in each of your moves, but when you land on a '*' square, change the number of squares you move from 2 to 3, or vice versa. You can not step on or pass through the black squares and you have only 8 moves in which to complete this task.
Hint: It doesn't actually matter how many men or women there were.
Answer: 17,760 dollars.
If there were M men, then there were (3552  M) women.
So one ninth of the men each received 45 dollars and one twelve of the women each received 60 dollars. So the total received was:
= 45 x 1 x M + 60 x 1 x (3552  M)
 
9 12
Simplify the two fractions by dividing the 45 by 9, and the 60 by 12 respectively.
= 5 x M + 5 x (3552  M)
= 5M + 17760  5M
= 17760
