If I give my brother \$5\$ dollars, then we will have the same amount of money. If instead he gives me \$10\$ dollars, then I'll have twice as much money as he will have. How much money does my brother currently have (in dollars)?

y = your money

b = brother's money

y - 5  = b + 5            <===== given    this is    y = b + 10

y+10 = 2 ( b-10)       <====  given      sub in   'y = b+10 '

b+10   + 10   = 2b - 20    Solve for 'b' by adding twent to both sides and subtracting 'b' from both sides

\$ 30 = b                         ( and you have \$ 40)
