Lynn has  x $  and spents   1/4 * x

Stacy spents   60 $          ;    together  450 $

$${\frac{{\mathtt{1}}}{{\mathtt{4}}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{60}} = {\mathtt{450}}$$       =>      $${\frac{{\mathtt{1}}}{{\mathtt{4}}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}} = {\mathtt{390}}$$      =>  x = 1560  $

 

Lynn had 1560 $

$${\frac{{\mathtt{1\,560}}}{{\mathtt{4}}}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{60}} = {\mathtt{450}}$$
