Brian had 3 times as much money as Rahim. Brian spent $158 of his money to buy a birthday gift for his grandma while Rahim was awarded $42 for winning a competition. In the end, they had the same amount of money. How much did they have altogether at first?

Let what Rahim had to start with =R
Brian had =3R


3R -  158 =R + 42, solve for R
R = $100 - Amount that Rahim started with.
$100 x 3 =$300 - Amount that Brian started with.
