Francis, Gif and Hakim shared a sum of money. Hakim decided to give Francis 2/3 of his money. Then Francis gave Gif 3/4 of his money and Gif gave 3/7 of his money to Hakim. In the end, the amount of money they had was in the ratio of 3:6:8. If Hakim had $55 more than Francis at first, how much money did Gif have in the end?
