**Reiny**, Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 8:11amlet the amount she spent each day be $x

so in the 6 days she spent 6x

This was 2/7 of her total

(2/7)total = 6x

total = (7/2)(6x) = 21x

so 21x - 5x = 20

16x = 20

x = 20/16 = 1.25

So she spent $1.25 each day

her total at the start was 21x = $26.25

check:

after 5 days, she spent 5(1.25) = 6.25

leaving her with $20 , ✔

in 6 days she spent 6(1.25) = $7.50

leaving her with 26.25-7.5 = $18.75

... and what is 2/7 of $26.25 ???

it is $7.5 ✔
