During the past month, you withdrew $22 from your savings account and then deposited $24. If your balance at the end of the month is $120, how much did you have in your account at the beginning of the month?

22 24
-- = --
120 x



Is this correct?

  • Math -

    No, this is not a multiplication or division statement.

    Simply look at it this way, your balance increased by $2. and it is now $120
    So it must have been $118

    I you feel you must set this up as an equation, you could say

    x - 22 + 24 = 120 and solve this to get
    x = 118
