    Mr. Brown had 200 dollars and his son had 20 dollars.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Money Word Problem

    Let us analyze the given problem above.

    What is asked?

    The amount of money that Mr. Brown and his son each had.

    What are the given?

    total amount of money that Mr. Brown and his son had - 220 dollars

    amount of money that Mr. Brown had - 10 times as much as his son

    Equation:

    Let x be the amount of money that Mr. Brown's son had.

    10x, as Mr. Brown had 10 times as much as his son.

    x + 10x = 220

    Solution:

    x + 10x = 220

    11x = 220

    11x/11 = 220/11

    x = 20

    Mr. Brown's son had 20 dollars.

    10x = 10(20) = 200

    Mr. Brown had 200 dollars.

    Final

    Mr. Brown had 200 dollars and his son had 20 dollars.

    Checking:

    x + 10x = 220

    20 + 10(20) = 220

    20 + 200 = 220

    220 = 220 ✔
