Answer to Question #22706 in Algebra for Bob Martin
My brother and I bought a boat, equal shares. He paid $3700.00 for the boat and I bought gear for $1443.64 to help pay my equal share. How much do I still owe to be even on the purchase of the boat?
It is assumed that your brother paid his half of priceconstituting $3700.00.
Therefore you also should pay $3700.00.
you have already paid $1443.64, so it remains to pay
3700 - 1443.64 = $2256.40
