Answer :

Let the money that Gayatri initially has = Rs. x

Therefore, money with Sandeep = Rs. (x + 50)


When each of them is given Rs 15, the ratio of the money they have becomes 3 : 1


Now, Money with Sandeep = x + 50 + 15 = x + 65


Also, money with Gayatri = x + 15



On cross multiplying, we get,


x + 65 = 3x + 45


2x = 20


x = 10


Therefore, Gayatri initially had Rs. 10 with her
