William had $108 more than Samuel. After William spent 3/4 of his money and Samuel spent half

of his, both boys had a total of $102 left. How much money did each of them have at first?

S=Samuel, W=William

Samuel ==S

W==108 + S

1/4 * [108 + S] + 1/2S ==102, solve for S

**S==$100 - what Samuel started with**

**W==$100 + $108 ==$208 - what William started with.**
