A young man spent 1/4 of his allowance on a movie. He spent 11/18 of the remainder on afterschool snacks. Then from the money remaining, he spent $3.00 on a magazine, which left him 1/24 of his original allowance to put into savings. how much of his allowance did he save?

Let x be the original amount,
x(11/4)(111/18)3 = x/24
Solve for x
