Meagan bought a book for $12.00, received an allowance of $15.00, paid back a loan of $7.00, bought lunch for $8.50, earned $8.00 raking leaves, and found $2.00. She now has $22.25. How much did she start with?

Help me please. Thank you!

Miguel and Yoshi went rock climbing. Miguel climbed up 15m, back down 4 m, climbed 6 m, slid back 17 m, climbed up 22 m, rested and climbed 14 m more. Yoshi climbed 12 m, slid back 4 m, rested, climbed up 33 m and slid back 7 m. They are now together at the 40 m mark. At what level did each start climbing?

ADD up purchases and earnings

-12.00 + 15.00 - 7.00 - 8.50 + 8.00 + 2.00

= - 2.50

x = money she started with

x + -2.50 = 22.25

x = 22.25 + 2.50

x = 24.75
