Madison spent 5/8 of her savings on a microwave oven and a refridgerator. She used 4/7 of the amount she spent to buy the refrigderator. The refridgerator cost $280 more than the microwave oven. How much savings did Madison start with ?

    20/56 of her savings was spent on the fridge. 15/56 of her savings was spent on the microwave. Let the savings be S.
    (20/56 - 15/56) S = 5/56 S = 280
    Solve for S.
    S = $3136
