Harry and Potter had $224 altogether. When Harry gave 1/5 of his money to Potter, they foundthey had the same amount of money. How much money did each have at the beginning?

  • maths -

    Let x = Harry, then 224-x = Potter.

    4/5x = (224-x) + 1/5x

    Solve for x. (Multiply both sides by 5 first.)
