1/4 of Mie's savings was equal
to 2/5 of Cheko's savings.
When Cheko increased his savings by $70 and Mie spent $134,
they had the same amount of savings.
How much savings did Cheko have finally?

M==Mie,    C==Cheko

 

1/4M ==2/5C,   

M - 134==C + 70, solve for C, M

Use substitution to get:

 

M==$544 - what Mie started with

C ==$340 - what Cheko started with.

 

$340 + $70 ==$410 - what Cheko ended up with.

$544 - $134==$410 - what Mie ended with

$70 + $134 = $204

3 units --- $204

1 unit --- $68

5 x $68 + $70 = $410 (Cheko)

Answer: $410

U may draw model for a clearer answer.
