Answer

This problem can be solved by using a ratio and proportion tactic.
So basically the problem can be written as this, 3:4 (Leila and Joe's profit) is to (Leila and Joe's total profit on the first sale).
Now this then can be converted into a fraction form.
This will be 3/4 X x/60.
So first, you have to multiply 60 to 3 in order to get 180.
After that, then you have to divide 180 with 4 in order to get 45.
So in the first sale, Joe just made $60 and other than that, Leila was able to make $45
