If Will gives Molly $9 he will have the same amount as her. If Molly gives will $9 the ratio of the money she has to the money Will has will be 1:2. How much money does Will have in the beginning

(w9) = (m+9)
(m9)/(w+9) = 1/2
w  m = 18
w + 2m = 27
m = 45
w = 63
so, we start out will=63, molly=45
639 = 54 = 45+9
459 = 36 = 1/2 (63+9)
