Money Sharing: Lower Secondary Mathematics Competition Question

Three friends are sitting at a table and wish to play a money-sharing game. Alice gives half her money to Brenda; then Brenda gives half her new total to Carla; and finally, Carla gives half her current total to Alice.

If the three friends each end up with $10, how much money did they each have at the start?
