Sharing an alternative approach where instead of representing parts as shaded and unshaded, I've replaced these with a letter and then making the comparison.

At first, Aaron had 4u & Devi had 3p. 4u + 3p = 300 Aaron spent 3u, left 1u. Devi spent 2p, left 1p. 1u + 1p = 90 3u + 3p = 270 Comparing to the beginning equation, 1u = 30 & 4u = 120 So 1p = 60 & 3p = 180.

This is a solution using the Model Method. It is convenient to rep Aaron's amount using 4 units and Devi's using 3 units. (Note the units are different in this case). The idea is to group one unit of Aaron with one unit of Devi, and then eliminate multiples of 90 until one unit of Aaron is left. Because we know the total is 300, we can determine one unit of Aaron. See diagram.
