1.Phillip has $23 more than Kevin. Together they have $187. How much money does each have? Choices for Kevins amount: 72, 78, 82 Let k = Kevins amount and k + 23 = Phillips amount k + (k + 23) = 187 k 72 72 + (72 + 23) =187 False 7878 + (78 + 23) = 187False 8282 + (82 + 23) = 187True Kevins amount = $82 Phillips amount = $105
