# Money

Peter has 2x more money than Michael. But if Peter gave Michael € 16 Michael would have 3.5 times more money than Peter. Determine how much money was originally Peter and how much Michael.

m =  12
p =  24

### Step-by-step explanation:

p=2m
3.5•(p-16) = (m+16)

p=2•m
3.5•(p-16) = (m+16)

2m-p = 0
m-3.5p = -72

m = 12
p = 24
