steve and andrew had $540 altogether. Steve gave 1/7 of his money to andrew. In return andrew gave 1/4 of the total amount he had to steve. Then they had both an equal amount of money. How much did steve have at first.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

s + a = 540

s = 540 - a

a + (540 - a)/7 = 360

a = 330

Steve had $210
