Betty earns $52.65 per week working as a lifeguard. She worked as a lifeguard for 5 weeks. She also earned $46.25 painting faces at a carnival. She spent $16.25 of her total earnings to buy a book. Betty put 1 over 6 of the remaining money in her savings account.
Betty used the following steps to find the total money she put in her saving account:
Step 1: [($52.65 ⋅ 5) + $46.25 − $16.25] ⋅ 1/6
Step 2: [$263.25 + $46.25 − $16.25] ⋅ 1/6
Step 3: 293.25 ⋅ 1/6
Step 4: $1,759.50
In which step did Betty first make an error? Use words to explain how Betty can correct her error.
