# Debt

Joe and Caryl have a debt of \$100,500. Joe makes \$90,000 per year, and Caryl makes \$35,000 per year. How much should both pay to zero out the debt fairly, based on their salaries?

Result

c =  28140
j =  72360

#### Solution:

j+c = 100500
j = 90000/35000*c

c+j = 100500
90000c-35000j = 0

c = 28140
j = 72360
