Mr.Shea saved $2,500 in April. His monthly salary is Twice the amount he saved in April. In May, he saved a certain amount of money.He spent $4,200 more than the amount he saved. How much did he save in May.

  • math - ,

    April savings -- 2500
    Salary -- 5000
    May saving --- x
    Amount spent in May = x + 4200

    x + 4200 = 5000
    x = 800

  • math - ,

    here is the answer.
    lets say X is the saved money in May.
    He spend 4200 more than X. It meant X+4200 is the money that he spent.
    So, X + (X+4200) needs to be 5000.
    Therefore, X=400. He saved 400 dollars in May

  • math - ,

    800

  • math - ,

    He saved $2,500 in April.
    He earned $5,000 in May.
    Thus he had a total of $7,500
    Total spent in May - $4,200 + $2,500+X
    X= Amount saved in May
    Thus total = Amount spent + Amount saved
    Thus total = $4,200 + #2,500 + X + X
    $7,500 = $4,200 + $2,500 + 2X
    Solve for X
    $7,500 = $6,700 + 2X
    2X = $800
    X = $400

    my brain hurts

    9200 you poopybutt

    This question was written by a moron. Where does it say that he could only spend his monthly salary? What happened to the $2500 he saved last month, or the rest of the money he has in the bank? He could've saved any amount from $1-5000. Not to mention the bigger problem. If he spent $4200 more than he "saved" then the real answer is $0. He didn't really save anything.
