Suppose, the total sales at restaurant A were $X. Then, the total sales at restaurant B were$(X-450,000).
Total sales at the two stores were $600,000,000: X + (X-450,000) = 600,000,000 Solving this equation: 2X = 600,000,000 + 450,000 X = 600,450,000/2 = 300225000 Therefore, the total sales at restaurant A were$300,225,000.
For restaurant B we have:
300225000 - 450,000 = 299775000
Therefore, the total sales at restaurant B were $299,775,000. Answer: the total sales at restaurant A were$300,225,000, at restaurant B - \$299,775,000.
