Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We're counting how much money is coming into the account, and how much is coming out :) First, how much is in it... Start at 420, and he puts in 35.50... six times So, what's 6x35.50 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Speaking of which, how much does he need, so that those checks are actually worth something? He already has 633, but he needs 1243... how much more does he need?
