First, get the total amount that April and June have.
Sine they share the equally, divide the total amount by 2.
So now each of them has:
`April = (x+20)/2`
`J u n e =(x+20)/2`
Since April share now is 4 more than she previously has, set her share equal to x+4.
Then, use this equation to solve for value of x.
Hence, the original amount that April has is 12 pounds.
Kindly Ignore the answer i posted earlier:
Amount April has = x
Amount June has = 20
Together they have = x + 20
Sharing the total amount equally means,
New amount April has = New Amount June has =
Also according to the question:
New amount April has = 4 + x
`=> 20 - 8 = 2x - x`
`=> 12 = x`
`=> x = 12`
Thus April Started with amount = 12
