Lyle got paid to today. He used 1/2 of his check to
pay bills. He spent 30% of what was left on new clothes, and going out to eat. while he was out, he gave $20 to a salvation army charity santa on the street corner. He put 3/4 of what was left into savings. He lent his friend $15 and had $85 left. How much did he start with?

    Lyle started with $1214.29.

    What you have to do is work backwards from $85 dollars and add the amounts he spent to get $1214.

    good luck,

    Donnie

    $1,200

    1200/2=600
    600-30% =420
    420-20=400
    400-75%=100
    100-15=85 he had left
