How much money did they bring
I don't know how to solve this, and would appreciate some help to get started.
Two pokerplayers, A and B, has lost an equal amount of money.
A has lost and B of the amounts that they brought. B had broght 200 dollars more then A.
How much money did they bring?
Any help would be appreciated.
Re: How much money did they bring
Let "a" be the amount of money that A brought and let "b" be the amount of money that B brought. Then A lost 1 and B lost dollars. And, we are told, those are equal:
We are also told that "B brought 200 dollars more than A":
b= a+ 200.
Solve those two equations for a and b.
