If Ali gives $6.20 to Ben, he will have 1/5 of Ben's amount,

Ali : 1u + 6.20

Ben : 5u - 6.20

If Ben gives $12.80 to Ali, he will have 3 times as much money as Ali,

Ali : 1p - 12.80

Ben : 3p + 12.80

1u + 6.20 -------> 1p - 12.80

1u -------> 1p - 12.80 - 6.20 = 1p - 19

5u - 6.20 -------> 3p + 12.80

5(1p - 19) - 6.20 = 5p - 101.20 -------> 3p + 12.80

1p -------> (12.80 + 101.20)/(5 - 3) = 57

3p + 12 .80 -------> 3 x 57 + 12 .80 = 183.80

Ans : $183.80.

P6 math.
