Let A has money = Rs.x  ;  Let B has money = Rs. y ;

If A gives Rs.40 to B , then both have equal money ;

Hence we get,  ( x-40 ) = ( y+40 )   or   x - y = 80 ...................... (1)

If B gives Rs.110 to A , Then   ( x+110) = 4 ( y-110)

hence we get  x - 4y = -550  .......................(2)

By solving eqn.(1) and eqn.(2) , we get  x = Rs.290  and y = Rs.210

hence A has Rs.290 and B has Rs.210
