Harry's amount of money is 75% of Kayla's amount of money. After Harry earned $30 and Kayla earned 25% more of her money, Harry's amount of money is 80% of Kayla's money. How much money did each have at the beginning?
H = .75 K
H+30 = .8 (1.25K) since H = .75K substitute this in
.75K + 30 = .8(1.25K)
.75K + 30 = K
.25K = 30
K = 120 then H = .75K = 90 YOU should check these answers.....are they correct? WHat do YOU think?
If you add 25 to H does it equal 80% of 1.25 K ?
