The answer is as follows:

Each participant receives 3% of eligible ompensation off the top. (A gets $4500, B gets $2940, C gets $450 totaling $7890).

Reduce the contribution of $9500 by the aloocated $7890 levaing $1610 to be allocaed to the participants with income above $65400 (TWB). Participant A's income above the TWB is $84600 and Participant B's income above the tWB is $32600. Making the income that the $1610 is to allocated against at $117200.

Divide the $1610 by $117200 to receive a factor of .0137372. Multiply this by the participants income above the TWB (A gets $1162 rounded ($84600 * .0137372). This is then added to the 3% contributions making the allocation to Participant A at $5662 ($4500 + $1162).
