Treble means three times the amount thus we will equate the new amount of money shared with, 3x. |

Ken amount = x and mac amount = y. Initially, mac = 3+ken. Therefore y = 3+x. Then ken win, Now, 3x = (initial amount of mac and ken together)+5. Initial amount of ken is x. Mac is x+3. Therefore 3x = (x+x+3)+2. 3x = 2x+5. x = 5. Therefore y = x+3 = 8. Then initially total amount of both (x+y) = 5+8 = 13. |
