For every dollar that Juan gets, Felipe gets $3. They made $3600 , how much did Felipe make?

x = Juan's dollar

3x = Felipe's dollars {Felipe gets $3 for Juan's $1}

x + 3x = 3600 {added how much each made to be equal to 3600}

4x = 3600 {combined like terms}

x = 900 {divided each side by 4}

3x = 2700 {substituted 900, in for x, into 3x}

3x = Felipe's dollars {Felipe gets $3 for Juan's $1}

x + 3x = 3600 {added how much each made to be equal to 3600}

4x = 3600 {combined like terms}

x = 900 {divided each side by 4}

3x = 2700 {substituted 900, in for x, into 3x}
