Money Word Problem

Let us analyze the given problem above.

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

Final

Checking:

x + 10x = 220

20 + 10(20) = 220

20 + 200 = 220

220 = 220 ✔

son = \$20

Mr. Brown = \$200

Step-by-step explanation:

given:

son's \$ = xMr. Brown's \$ = 10xtotal \$ = \$220

req'd: Amount of \$ each had

son's \$Mr. Brown's \$

Solutions:

solve for x (son)

x + 10x = \$220

11x = \$220

11x/11 = \$220/11

x = \$20 -> son's \$

solve for 10x (Mr. Brown)

10x = 10(\$20)

= \$200 -> Mr. Brown's \$

Check:

x + 10x = \$220

\$20 + 10(\$20) = \$220

\$20 + \$200 = \$220

\$220 = \$220
