Let us say the Amount Tenna is equal to Tenna

let us say Reshma has an amount Reshma.

Adding both amounts, we get Tenna + Reshma = 51

taking Tenna to the right hand side, we get Reshma = 51 - Tenna ---- 1

given that, 1/5 * Tenna = 1/8 * Reshma - 3

now multiply both sides with 40...

8 * Tenna = 5 * Reshma - 120

8 * Tenna = 5 * (51 - Tenna) - 120 using --- 1 substitute for Reshma

simplify the above by bringing all terms with Tenna to the left side.

so 13 * Tenna = 255 - 120 = 135

So Tenna has an amount 135/13 = 10.384 ...

Reshma has an amount = 51 - 135/13 = 40.615...

checking the answers again with the given question statement works out right...
