**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 8:43pmlet the amount of her savings be x

cost of both = (5/8)x

cost of fridge = (4/7)(5/8)x = (5/14)x

(5/8)x - (5/14)x = 280

15x/56 = 280

15x = 15680

x = 1045.33

Here savings were $1053.33

cost of fridge = ((5/14)(1045.33 = 373.33

cost of both = (5/8)(1045.33) = 653.33

difference = 653.33 - 373.33 = 280

all checks out
