Some money will be divided in the ratio of 1 to 2. Three times the smaller amount is one hundred seventeen dollars less than two times the larger amount. How will the money be divided?

Let  the  smaller amt = x        and  the larger amt =  2x

 

So

 

3x +  117  =  2 (2x)

 

3x  + 117   =  4x

 

117  =  x

 

The  money  will  be  divided  as     x :   2x    =           117   :   234
