Seigi and Gavin both worked hard over the summer. Together, they earned a total of $425. Gavin earned $25 more than Seigi. Hoe much did each of them earn??

Trying subtracting $25 from the total amount of $425, then divide the remaining amount by 2. Then add the $25 dollars to one of the products and you have both your amounts.

$225

Seigi earnings  x
Gavin's earnings  x+25
x + x+25 = 425
2x = 400
x= 200
Seigi earned $200
Gavin earned $225
