How can "John’s share exceeded of the sum of money " ? , its part of SUM OF MONEY..

***********

5x-3x = 2x = 50 means x = 25

so john has 5*25 = 125 and other guy has 3*25 = 75 ..

but they are not in answer..

i think i made some mistake

in this case i will seach for answer which i can divide complety by 75 and that is 450 only

Thanks
