The ratio of the amount of money Karen had to the amount of money Peter had was 2:5. Peter received $75 from his mother, the ratio became 4:15. How much money did each person have at first?

Karen had 2x
Peter had 5x
after mom's gift
Karen  2x
Peter  5x+75
2x/(5x+75) = 4/15
30x = 20x + 300
10x = 300
x = 30
