Apple harvest

Mrs. Jones was very proud of her apple tree. One autumn, after harvesting her apples, she called her three sons together. "Here are 150 apples," she said. "I want you to take them to the market tomorrow and sell them for me." She gave Paul 15 apples, Nick 50, and Ben 85. "Your job," added Mrs. Jones, "is to sell the apples in such a way that each of you brings home the same amount of money." How do they do it?
