Mary had $488 more than Rachel at first. After each girl spent the same amount of money at a shop, Rachel had 3/5 of her money left while Mary had 6/7 of her money left. How much money did they have left altogether?

**This question needs to be corrected!!!**

Mary had $488 more than Rachel at first. After each girl spent the same amount of money at a shop, Rachel had 3/5 of her money left while Mary had ~~6/7~~ **5/7** of her money left. How much money did they have left altogether?

Mary had => **488 + x** Rachel had => **x**

After each girl spent the same amount of money, they were left with:

Mary => **5/7(488 + x) **Rachel => **2x/5**

Amount of money each girl spent:

Mary => **2/7****(488 + x) **Rachel => **2x/5**

**2/7(488 + x) = 2x/5**

**x = 1220**

They had left altogether **$ 1952**
