1/2 of Alex's money was equal to 3/4 of Brayden's money. If Alex gave Brayden $5, then he would have $6 less than Alex. How much did Brayden have at first?

1/2 a = 3/4 b

 

a-5 = (b+5) + 6         or   a = b+16  sub into the first equation

 

1/2 ( b+16)= 3/4 b

1/2b  + 8  = 3/4 b

1/4 b = 8

b = 32

 

 

 

and a =48
