Jeri finds a pile of money with at least $\$200$. If she puts $\$50$ of the pile in her left pocket, gives away $\frac23$ of the rest of the pile, and then puts the rest in her right pocket, she'll have more money than if she instead gave away $\$200$ of the original pile and kept the rest. What are the possible values of the number of dollars in the original pile of money? (Give your answer as an interval.)

I finally solved it!  The answer is [200, 450).  Thanks for everyone's help!
