When Angela and walker 1st started to work, their weekly salaries totaled $500.  Now during the past 25 years Walker has seen his weekly salary triple.  Angela weekly became 4 times larger.  Together their weekly salaries totaled $1740.  How much did they make 25 years ago

Let Angela's salary be x.  So Walker's salary 500-x

Therefore the equation:  4x + 3 ( 500-x) = 1740

4x +1500 -3x = 1740

x = 240.   And 500-x = 260

Answer:  Angela made $ 240  and Walker $ 260 twenty five years ago.
