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
