Shelly, Veronica, Christy, and Ruth have $106 total.  Shelley and Veronica together have $56, Shelly and Christy together have $59, and Shelley and Ruth together have $43.  How much does each girl have individually?  Clearly show your work and explain your thinking!

Shelley will be S

Veronica V

Christy C

Ruth R

So S+V+C+R =106

S+V =56 so v= 56-S

S+C=59 so c =59-S

S+R=43 so R =43-S


Substituting in the 1st equation you get

S+56-S+59-S+43-S=106

2S = 52

S=26

So they will have.......

Shelley will be 26

Veronica 26

Christy 29

Ruth17
