  1. Rachel J/5
    Rena (1/6)(4J/5) = 2 J/15

    now remaining J - J/5 - 2 J/15
    =15 J/15 - 3 J/15 - 2 J/15
    = 10 J/15 = 2 J/5

    now Rachel eats 2/5 *2 J/5= 4J/25
    now have 2 J/5 - 4J/25
    = 6 J/25
    now Rena eats 2/3
    so
    1/3 * 6 J/25 = 2 J/25 left
    half of that = J/25
    so
    2 = J/25
    J = 50
