Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3okay 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
