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.
