    Lets say Matthew already has the 10 dollars and that they need to share the remaining 37 dollars

    So you would divide 37 by 2 and that would give the amount tony has

    \[37\div2=$18.50\] is what tony has

    but when you add $28.50 & 18.50 the total is $47 they don't check out to be $37
