1/3 of Damien's money is the same as 4/5 of Philip's money. If Damien had $21 more than Philip, how much money do they have altogether?

Let Damien's total amount of money ==D

Let Philip's total amount of money ==P

1/3D ==4/5P,

D ==P + 21, solve for D, P

**D ==$36 and P ==$15**

**$36 + $15 ==$51.00 - their total amount of money.**
