Homework Help: 6th grade math

Posted by Andre on Tuesday, April 7, 2009 at 8:40pm.

Max kept records about where he spent his money. At the end of the year, he announced that he had spent 1.2 of his income on food and rent, 1/2 of his income on clothing, 1/12 on entertainment, and had saved $1400.
Mike said he spent 1/2 of his income on food and rent, 1.4 of his income on clothing, 1/12 on entertainment, and had saved $1400.
1. Who had the highest yearly salary?
2.How much more did he make?
3. How much did the other person make during the year?

We need to find out how to solve this problem. We do not want the answer to the problem we want to know how to solve.
