**drwls**, Friday, April 11, 2008 at 7:11amH = J + 240

J = 150 + A

H + J + A = 990

Solve those three equations in three unknowns. H, J, and A are the amounts had by Henry, Joe and Ann.

You first step might be to rewrite the last one as

2 J + 240 + A = 990

2 J + A = 750

Then substitute J-150 for A and solve for J
