Sarin, Fatimah and Hairu have some money in their coin banks. If Sarin gives \$26 to Hairu, both boys will have the same amount of money each. If Fatimah gives \$15 to Hairu, she will have the same amount of money as Hairu. How much more money does Sarin have than Fatimah?

Sarin gives \$26 to Hairu so that they have same amount of money

The amount of money Sarin more than Hairu is twice the amount he gives to Hairu
