Annie and Bennie are shopping. Altogether, they brought $86 with them. Annie bought a new pair of sneakers that cost 4/9 of her money, while the new shirt Bennie got cost $16. The amount they each have left was the same. How much money did Annie bring? How much money did Bennie bring?

Let the amount of money that Annie brought with her==A

Then, the amount of money that Bennie brought with him ==86 - A

 

A - 4/9A ==5/9A - amount Annie has left

86  -  A  - 16 ==70  - A - amount that Bennie has left

 

5/9A ==70  - A, solve for A

A + 5/9A ==70

14/9A ==70

14A ==70 * 9 ==630

A ==630 / 14 ==$45 - amount of money that Annie brought

86  -  45 ==$41 - amount of money that Bennie brought.
