Let the money he have be Rs 5x and that he gave to his friend be Rs 5y, such that x>y.

According to the question,

5x - 5y = 500

We can see from the equation that 5x> 500 because 500 is the money that he is left with.

So 5x = 625

x = 4

Then 625 - 5y = 500

5y = 125

y = 3

So, the money he had = Rs 625 and that he gave to his friend = Rs 125
