At first. the ratio of Sean’s savings to Eugene’s savings was 3:7. After each of them bought a similar laptop for $1488. the ratio of Sean’s savings to Eugene’s savings became 1:4. What was the total sum of savings Sean and Eugene had at first?

S==Sean,   E==Eugene

 

S / E ==3 / 7

[S - 1488] / [E - 1488]==1 / 4, solve for S, E

 

S ==$2,678.40 - what Sean started with.

E==$6,249.60 - what Eugene started with.

 

$2,678.40  +  $6,249.60 ==$8,928.00 - total sum of both.
