Divide money 2

Ben and Dan had the same amount of money at the start. When Ben gave 300 to Dan, the ratio of Ben's money to Dan's money became 2:3. How much money did each have at first?

Correct answer:

x =  1500

Step-by-step explanation:

3(x-300) = 2(x+300)

3·(x-300) = 2·(x+300)

x = 1500

x = 1500/1 = 1500

x = 1500
