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    ?
