The ratio of the amount of money Karen had to the amount of money Peter had was 2:5. Peter received $75 from his mother, the ratio became 4:15. How much money did each person have at first?

  • Maths - ,

    Karen had 2x
    Peter had 5x

    after mom's gift
    Karen --- 2x
    Peter ---- 5x+75

    2x/(5x+75) = 4/15
    30x = 20x + 300
    10x = 300
    x = 30

    Karen had 60
    peter had 150

    check:
    Karen still has 60 , Peter has 225

    60:225 = 4:15
