Lucy had 1/3 the money that Aaron had. After that Aaron spent $45 and Lucy's mother gave her $6. Aaron still had $3 more than Lucy. How much money did Lucy have at first?

=> Let x is the money Lucy had. 
=> So, Aaron had 3x money

Given: (3x - 45) = x + 6 + 3

            3x - 45 = x + 9

            3x - x = 9 + 45

             2x = 54

        x = 54/2 = $27
