okay lets see :) so: $\text{Restaurant A = Restaurant B + 75,000}$and$\text{Restaurant A + Restaurant B = 550,000,000}$so lets substitute the value of Restaurant A:$\text{(Restaurant B + 75,000) + Restaurant B = 550,000,000}$$\text{2 $$\times$$ Restaurant B + 75,000 = 550,000,000}$subtract 75,000:$\text{2 $$\times$$ Restaurant B = 549,925,000}$divide by two:$\text{Restaurant B = 274,962,500}$now plug in the value of "Restaurant B" into [Restaurant A + Restaurant B = 550,000,000":$\text{Restaurant A + Restaurant B = 550,000,000}$$\text{Restaurant A + 274,962,500 = 550,000,000}$subtract 274,962,500:$\text{Restaurant A = 275,037,500}$ so that concludes that: $\text{Restaurant A = 275,037,500}$$\text{Restaurant B = 274,962,500}$ Hope that helps! :) @MauriceLong
