Think of Susan's prizes as variables.

$12,500 = x

sports car = y

airline tickets = z

furniture = v

If Susan's total prize was doubled, all the smaller prizes (or variables) must be doubled.

2(x + y + z + v) = 2x + 2y + 2z + 2v

She should have received two sports cars and ten pieces of furniture.
