Sara has twice as much money as Miguel. If she had $6 more. She would have 4/3 as much money as he has. How much money does each have now?

can't happen. How could she have less than twice as much if she had $6 more?

Check the problem.

I solved the problem like that:

Sara: 2x

Miguel: x

2x+6 =4/3x

18/3 =4/3 -6/3x

6 = -2/3x

x = - 9

so Miguel = -9

Sara = -18

Is it correct?
