Carlos Martin received a statement from his bank showing a balance of $56.75 as of March 15th. His checkbook shows a balance of $87.37 as of March 20. The bank returned all the cancelled checks but two. One check was for $5.00 and the other was for $13.25. How much did Carlos deposit in his account between the March 15 and the March 20?

what do the want me to do with the 5.00 and 13.25 i don't get it.

    Assume the bank statement was correct, and the checkbook balance was also correct. We can continue the statement as follows:

    date deposit/cheque (+/-) Balance
    March 15 - 56.75
    ?? -5.00 (check) 51.75
    ?? -13.25 (check) 38.50
    ?? Deposit (Amount?) 87.37

    Thus deposit required to change the balance from 38.50 to 87.37 would be
    87.37-38.50=48.87
