**Reiny**, Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 5:10pmlet Lexi have $ x

then Maria has $ (250-x)

(3/5)x = (250-x) - 40

3x/5 = 210 - x

times 5

3x = 1050 - 5x

8x = 1050

x = 131.25

Lexi had $131.25

check:

Maria had 118.75

Lexi spend (2/5) of 131.25, leaving him with (3/5)(131.25) or 78.75

Maria spend $40 of her 118.75 leaving her with 78.75

All is good!
