Paul had 4 times as much money as Cliff. Paul spent $198 of his money to buy a birthday gift for his grandma while Cliff was awarded $66 for winning a competition. In the end, they had the same amount of money. How much did they have altogether at first?

P:  4x

C:   x

 

4x - 198 = x + 66   |-x

3x - 198 = 66        |+198

         3x = 264      | :3

           x =88

4x + x = 5x 

5*88 = 440
