Gerald and Wilson went shopping with the same amount of money. After Gerald spent $60 and Wilson spent $20, Wilson had five times as much money left as Gerald. How much money did each of them bring along for shopping?

g = w

 

5 (g-60) = ( w-20)        sub in g = w

5w - 300 = w - 20

w = 70        and     g = 70       they brought 140 dollars  (70 dollars each) .....
