Bob has 20 dollars. Bill has y dollars.
They decided to go to the movies. They only paid for their own tickets. Bob spent 2/5 of his money and Bill spent 4/15 of his money.
If the tickets were the same amount of money, how much money does Bill have?

Hello Guest!

$$\dfrac{2\cdot 20€}{5}=\dfrac{4y}{15}\\ y=\dfrac{15\cdot 2\cdot 20€}{4\cdot5}$$

$$y=30€$$

Bill has 30 Dollars.
