If Juno give $25 to Leon, he will have four times as much money as Leon.
If Juno gives $69 to Leon, he will have twice as much money as him.
(a) How much money does Juno have?
(b) How much money do Juno and Leon have altogether?

Let the amount of money Leon has be 1u.
If Juno gives $25 to Leon,
Leon1u + 25
Juno(1u +25) x 4 = 4u + 100(1)
If Juno gives $69 to Leon,
Leon1u +69
Juno  (1u + 69) x 2 = 2u + 138(2)
(1) must be equal to (2), thus
4u + 100 = 2u + 138
2u= 38
1u = 19 (Leon)
Juno(19 + 69) x2 + 69 = 245
Both245 + 19 = 264
Ans: (a) $245 (b) $264

If Juno has $245 and Leon has $19,
after Juno gives Leon $25, it'll be J$220 and L$44.
That isn't 4 times, it's 5 times.
How come (1) and (2) is the same? If juno gives more, than the previous time, she shouldn't have the same amount as the previous time but has lesser.
My take:
Draw 'give $25' model  J (4U), L (1U) = Total 5U
Draw 'give $69' model  J (2U), L (1U) = Total 3U
Since it's internal transfer whereby the total number do not change, the total units (15Ucommon multiple) shouldn't change as well.
Therefore, cut each unit in the 'GIVE $25' model into 3 parts each unit and cut each unit in the 'GIVE $69' model into 5 parts each unit.
You should get 15 parts in each model.
Look at leon, there's a difference in the 'give $25' model and 'give $69 model' of 2 parts.
There's a difference of 2 parts because he received $46 on the 2nd model.
Therefore, based on 'give $25' model,
2 parts = $46
1 part = $46 / 2 = $23
12 parts = $23 x 12 = $276
15 parts = $23 x 15 = $345
Juno = $276 + $25 = $301  (a)
**work backwards to check, juno should get 4 times of leon if she gives him $25**
**alternatively, depending on student's preference, you may use ratio method, applying the same logic that the total number of units doesn't change.**
eg, 4 : 1 , 2 : 1
12 : 3 , 10 : 5
12  10 = 2
or
5  3 = 2
2 units = $69  $25= $46

So the answers should be
(a) $289
(b) $330

Hi,
i think 2 units =$69  $25 = $44, (not $46)
Thus, 1 unit = 22
(a) Juno22 x 12 + 25 = 289, (not 301)
(b) 22 x 15 = 330
Am i right?
