Answer

Amount received by Sean = 6,500 Dollars Amount received by George = 3,500 Dollars

Work Step by Step

Let's assume that the amount received by Sean = x. George is to receive $3000 less than Sean, thus Amount received by George = x - 3000. Amount received by Sean + Amount received by George = 10,000 dollars. x + ( x-3000) = 10,000 2x - 3000 = 10,000 2x = 10,000 + 3,000 2x = 13,000 x = 6,500 Dollars So Amount received by Sean = 6,500 Dollars. Amount received by George = (6,500 - 3000) = 3,500 Dollars.
