Mr Shea saved $2500 in April. His monthly salary is two times the amount he saved in April. In May, he saved a certain amount of money. He spent $4200 more than the amount he saved. How much did he save in May?

Please explain in easy to understand equations. I am mathematically challenged.

salary is 2*2500 = 5000

May spending = 4200 + May savings

No idea how much he saved in May.

Something is missing.

Ha ha ha Steve!! That's about as far as I got too! It was supposed to end up $400. No idea how though.
