## Allowance distribution problem [closed]

When I say allowance, I mean like the kind you earned as a child. Here is the problem I am trying to solve. A parent has $20 they want to give to the child for doing all of their chores. If the child does all of their chores, they get 100% of their allowance. However is thy only do some of their chores they only get a percentage of their allowance. Here is my kicker. Not all chores are weighed the same. The chores are weighted: • Big chores = 10 • Medium chores = 5 • Small chores = 1 If the parent setups a set of chores for the week: • 2 big chores(paint house, change oil) • 4 medium chores(clean room) • 7 small chores(brush teeth, wash dishes) At the end of the week, the child only does: • 1 big chores(paint house) • 2 medium chores(clean room) • 3 small chores(brush teeth) I am unsure how to calculate how much allowance the child gets and what the distributions per-chore would be for the$20. Could someone point me in the right directions? The reason I have this question is because I am building an IOS app to help parents and children manage household duties. Please forgive me if I tagged this question wrong, as I am not sure what tag this falls under.
