Hannah and francine have 120. hannah and peter have 230.peter has 6 times as much money sa francine.how much money does hannah have?

math  Steve, Friday, May 24, 2013 at 11:20am
h+f = 120
h+p = 230
p = 6f
since p=6f,
h+f = 120
h+6f = 230
subtract top from bottom to get
5f = 110
f = 22
so, h=98
Hannah has 98

Where does the 5f come from??

I understand you subtract, but what determines that you should divide 110 by 5?
