After saving 4/5 of his salary every month, Zacky has $150 left. Micah saves 6/7 of his salary every month. If both guys save an equal amount each month, how much is their combine salary?

  • Math - Grade 5 -

    Let x = Zacky's salary.

    1/5x = 150

    x = 750

    4/5 of 750 = 600

    Let y = Micah's salary

    6/7y = 600

    Solve for y, and then add x + y.
