Bill has overdrawn his account by $15. There is a $10 service charge for an overdrawn account. If he deposits $60, what is his new balance?
so far, this is what i think it should be like:
*15+10=5
5+60=55
is it $55???

What about his overdraw of $15 ?
his balance would be 60  15 10 = 35 
wait, this means that in the beginning he got more out of his account, which made it 15 in his account

never mind, thx for the help

You forgot to subtract the $15 that he's overdrawn.
He deposits $60. But the bank takes out the $15 plus the $10 service charge.
$60  $25 = $35 
thank u, i understand it now

ehh
