**Jai**, Friday, October 21, 2011 at 9:27pmlet x = amount of money of Lexi

let 250 - x = amount of amount of Marie

then set up the equation:

x - (2/5)x = 250 - x - 40

(3/5)x = 210 - x

(3/5)x + x = 210

(8/5)x = 210

x = 210*(5/8)

x = $ 131.25 (Lexi's money)

250 - x = 118.75 (Marie's money)

hope this helps~ :)
