Ali deposited $120 in her savings account. This represents 75% of the money she received for her birthday. She pent the rest of her money on a lego toy. How much did the lego cost?

Can someone explain how to solve this, please?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 6:40pmLet x = the amount of money she received for her birthday.

0.75x = 120

x = 120 / 0.75

x = $160

160 - 120 = 40

She spent $40 on the toy.
