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 ?

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 ^.^

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?
