Question

Answer

Let Gary have U amount of money.
So Fabian has (2/3)U.

Now, U – 54 =(2/3)U + 54
(1/3)U = 108
U = $324

So Gary has $324 and Fabian (2/3)324 = $216

Let X be the amount of money Gary should give to Fabian so that Fabian has 7/8 as much money as Gary.

324 – X = 7/8(216 + X)
324 – X = 189 + (7/8)X
(15/8)X = 135
X = $72 #
