Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

lets get x as the volume of syrup bell receive

y as the volume of syrup Eva receive 

then

X+Y=16000----------------(1)

Y=3x/5-40

5y-3x=-200-----------------(2)

(1) multifly by 3

3x+3y=48000---------------(3)

then

(2)+(3)

5y+3y=48000-200

8y=47800

y=5975 ml

so x=16000-5975

x=10025 ml


volume of syrup bell receive=10025 ml


volume of syrup Eva receive =5975 ml
