lopez spent 1/3 of his vacation money for travel and 2/5 of his vacation money for lodging. He spent $1100 for travel and lodging. What is the total amount of money he spent on his vacation?
1/3 + 2/5 = 5/15 + 6/15 = 11/15
is the fraction of total vacation expenses (V) that is for travel and lodging
11/15 V = $1100
V = $1500
