Hazel spent \$5. Gina spent \$59.

So Hazel spent \$54 less than Gina.

Since they started with the same amount of money,

This means Hazel has \$54 more than Gina after spending.

Hazel has 4 times as much money as Gina now.

So she has 3 times more money than Gina.

3 times = \$54
1 time = \$54 ÷ 3 = \$18

4 times = \$18x 4 = \$72

So Hazel has \$72 now. Gina has \$18 now.

So total amount at first
= \$72 + \$18 + \$5 + \$59
= \$154

G and H started out with the same sum of money.

Upon inspection, G spent \$54 more than H.

As a result, H had \$54 more than G at the end. Coincidentally, H had 4 times as much left as G.

This means that H had 3 units of money more than G, which corresponds to the \$54 extra money.

3 units --> \$54
1 unit --> \$54 / 3 = \$18
4 units --> \$18 x 4 = \$72

So H had \$72 at the end and G had \$18 at the end.

Their total sum of money at first
= \$72 + \$18 + \$59 + \$5
(remember they spent this much money)
= \$154
