Peter and Blake had the same amount of money. After Peter spent $41 and Blake spent $51, Peter had 3 times as much money as Blake. How much money did each have at first?

x - 41 = 3(x - 51)

x - 41 = 3x - 153

-2x = -112

x = 56

x - 41 / x - 51 = 3 / 1

3(x - 51) = x - 41

x = 56

Peter and Blake had $56 each.
