Angela, Caleb, Daniel and Eliza have $844 altogether. Caleb has$32 more than Angela and Daniel has 5/6 the amount Eliza has. After Angela gives $4 to Caleb, he will have 1 1/2 the amount of money Daniel has. How much money does Angela have at first? Jul 20, 2022 ### 2+0 Answers #1 +2305 +1 Set up a system: $$a + c + d + e = 844$$ $$c = 32 +a$$ $$d = {5 \over 6} e$$ $$a - 4 = {3 \over 2} d$$ Hint: write all the variables in terms of e...

2x + 11/6y = $844 -$32

2x + 11/6y = 812

x + 36 = 1 1/2 (5/6y)

x + 36 = 3/2 * 5/6y => x + 36 = 5/4y

4/5 (x + 36) = y

2x + 11/6 (4/5 (x + 36)) = 812

2x + 22/15x + 52.8 = 812 => x = 219

\$219 at first
