**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 10:51amKeith's amount --- k

Shawn's amount --- s

(k-38)/s = 2/5

5k - 190 = 2s

5k - 2s = 190 (#1)

k/(s-38) = 8/13

13k = 8s - 304

13k - 8s = -304 (#2)

4(#1) - #2 ----> 7k = 1064

k = 152

back in #1

5(152) - 2s = 190

s = 570

Keith had $152 , Shawn had $570
