420 + 35.50 X 6 / 310.75 X 4 = 8.148028962 not sure if this is what you want but.... i tried.....

2. PeterPan

420... And then add six times 35.50....

3. Selena2345

what

4. PeterPan

We'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 ?

5. mathgirl2012

what

6. Selena2345

6 x 35.50 = 213

7. PeterPan

Yeah, that's it :) So, that makes 420 + 713 in his account ^.^ But that's not the answer yet ;)

8. Selena2345

i add 420 + 713 right

9. PeterPan

Sorry, 420 + 213

10. PeterPan

not 713

11. Selena2345

420+213=633

12. PeterPan

Okay, so leave that for now :) Now, let's count how much he's taking away from the account... namely, the checks he writes...

13. Selena2345

what

14. PeterPan

He writes checks, doesn't he? Four of them, in fact, but for how much?

15. Selena2345

4 checks for \$310.75 each

16. Selena2345

@PeterPan

17. PeterPan

Yeah, so how much is all of that? :)

18. Selena2345

4 x 310.75=1243

19. PeterPan

haha yeah :) He's really not that bright, is he? :D He only has 633 in his account, but writes checks for 1243 total... no wonder the world's going cuckoo ^.^

20. PeterPan

Speaking 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?

21. Selena2345

1243-633 right

22. PeterPan

That's precisely correct :) Great job, Selena ^.^

23. Selena2345

1243-633=610
