how do solve this question?
jane budgets her monthly take-home pay. the remainder she deposits in her savings account . she budgets 1/3 of her take-home pay for rent, 1/8 for car expenses,1/6 for food , 1/24 for insurance and 1/16 for entertainment. what is jane's monthly take-home pay if she deposits $546 in her savings account?
48 is your common denominator.
16/48=rent, 6/48=car, 8/48=food, 2/48=insurance, 3/48=entertainment. Add them all up and she spends 35/48 of her money. She saves 13/48 of her money. 13/48 of $546 = ? That is your answer
