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

(1/2)(36)=$18.00
