Bell and Eva a re sharing 16000 ml of maple syrup.Eva receives 3/5 of the amount received by Bell minus 40 ml. How many ml of maple syrup does each of them receive?

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
