The first step to solving these is understand what they are saying, and translating to "mat" George receiving $3000 less then Sean. if Sean receives x, the George gets 3000 less or x-3000 total of $100,000 is to be divided between Sean and George means Sean + George = 100000 x + x -3000 = 100000 is the equation x + x is 2x so we can also write this as 2x -3000 = 100000 can you solve for x? and then x-3000 ?
