This morning Tom deposited 22.25 in his bank account. At lunchtime he withdrew 40.00 and he found out that he had a balance of 85.87. What was his balance at the start of the day?

It's your turn now.
I'll be glad to check your answer. 
IS IT 85.87 +40.00 =125.87 22.25 =103.62 +22.25. so is it103.62?

No. Please try again.

Started with 125.87 40 =85.87

sorry i just don't get it.

I'm sorry, Sam, but I goofed. Your first answer was right. It's 103.62.

Thank you. I was going crazy trying to figure it out.Thank you for all your help in math
