    Last month, Edwin had $2325.35 that he divided into two bank accounts. He deposited 2/5 into a savings account. He deposited the rest into a checking account. How much money did Edwin deposit into his checking account?

    You can use a proportion: 1 lb is to 2.5 oz as 5 lb is to x \(\dfrac{1}{2.5} = \dfrac{5}{x} \) Cross multiply.

    Correct. \(1x = 5 \times 2.5\) \(x = 12.5\)
