Sally makes $200 per week. Before Sue had her pay tripled, Sally made twice as much as Sue. How much does Sue now make per week?

Sally makes $200 per week.

Sally makes twice as much as Sue. 

Then, Sue's pay is tripled.

Sally=2*Sue

200=2*Sue                ---divide both sides by 2

100 = Sue

 

Sue made $100 dollars a week, and now her pay is tripled.

100*3 = 300

 

So, Sue now makes $300 a week.
