math: bobby has \$14 more than tina while seda has twice as much money as bobby. together they have \$208. how much money does each have?

• algebra -

T + T + 14 + 2(T + 14) = 208

4T + 42 = 208

4T = 166

T = 41.50

Tina: 41.50
Bobby: 55.50
Seda: 111.00

• algebra -

Bobby = x+14
Tina = x
Seda = 2(x+14)

x+14+x+2x +28 = 208
4x + 42= 208
4x + 42-42= 208 -42
4x = 166
4x/4 = 166/4
x = 41.50
Tina = \$ 41.50
Bobby =\$ 55.50
Seda = \$ 111
