Julian had $40 more than Ricky originally. After Julian gave Ricky $60, Ricky had twice as much money as Julian. Find the total amount of money they have

R = Ricky's money

J = julian's money = R + 40 (given)

J = R + 40 -60 then equals 1/2 R = 1/2 (R+ 60)

R + 40 - 60 = 1/2(R+60)

R -20 = 1/2.R +.30.

1/2 R =50.

R = 100 then J has R + 40 = 140 100 + 140 = 240
