Help me to solve a calculation

Hello,

I need help to solve this calculation.

2 people have a company together. 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

male 1 has contributed 84.675% of the costs necessary to earn the stated revenue ... shouldn't he earn the same percentage of the profits?

84.675% of 6250 is $\approx$ 5292.19

It should be said that 1200 of male 1 costs (3387) are some money that male 2 owed him in advance, which has nothing to do with the company. 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.

How much should each of them have?
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...
