reduce highest dollar contributor first and bring him/her down to next highest

-reduce A by $900

reduce next two on a dollar for dollar basis until you either use up excess or get to the third person in line.

- reduce A and B by 1/2 of remaining excess since that eliminates excess before getting to C. So -

A's reduction = $900 + 1/2(4700 - 900) = $2,800.
