    Answer:

    Will’s share =   48

    Olly’s share =  32

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Will’s share : Olly’s share = 3:2

    Will’s share = 3x

    Olly’s share = 2x

    3x + 2x =  £ 80                 {Combine like terms}

         5x   = 80                    {Divide both sides by 5}

          x = 80/5

           x = 16

    Will’s share = 3x = 3*16 = 48

    Olly’s share = 2x = 2*16 = 32
