Sara has twice as much money as Miguel. If she had \$6 more. She would have 4/3 as much money as he has. How much money does each have now?

• Algebra -

can't happen. How could she have less than twice as much if she had \$6 more?

Check the problem.

• Algebra -

I solved the problem like that:
Sara: 2x
Miguel: x

2x+6 =4/3x

18/3 =4/3 -6/3x

6 = -2/3x
x = - 9

so Miguel = -9

Sara = -18

Is it correct?

• Algebra -

you know anybody with a negative age?

If you solved the equation your answer would be x(Miguel)=-9 and Sara=-18. There is no solution because you can't have a negative amount of money.
