First find out how much of her allowance she earned washing dishes and cleaning her room:
(1/3)+(1/6) (Find LCD)
=(2/6)+(1/6)
=3/6
=1/2
So if 1/2 of her allowance is earned washing dishes and cleaning her room, then the other 1/2 of her allowance is earned doing other things. So:
(1/2)(36)=$13.00

Sorry, hit the wrong key:
(1/2)(36)=$18.00
