The total revenue is 6250, which should be divided between them. So we need to figure out how much profit both parties have after each of their costs is deducted. However, they both have different costs. Male 1 has 3387 in costs Male 2 has 613 in costs . How much should each of them have? My answer is that male 1 should have 2774 more than male 2: 3387-613 = 2774. So male 1 = 6250/2=3125+2774 = 5899 Male 2= 5899-6250 = 351

So male 1 costs is 2187, if you look at it isolated to the company. The 1200 is a separate debt, but still have to be included in the calculation.

In future, post the entire problem statement. Nothing in your original post stated anything about the highlighted debt.

I'm folding my hand on this round. Thanks for playing.

Assuming costs are shared equally:
Code:
    M1           M2
-3387        -613
3125        3125
===        ===
-262        2512
1387       -1387
===       ====
1125        1125
...and they all lived happily forever after...
