Let the money Michael had first=x
Bryant=60/100x= 3/5x
let the bill paid for lunch=y
Bryant=25/100y= 1/4y
Michael=75/100y= 3/4y
3/5x1/4y=56
12x5y=1120 ....eqn(i)
x3/4y=25/100x
x3/4y=1/4x
4x3y=x
3x3y=0....eqn(ii)
solve by elimination method by multiplying eqn(ii) by 4
12x5y=1120
12x12y=0
7y=1120
y=160
the amount paid for lunch= $160 👍
