Max spends 60% of his pay on car expenses and 12% on fast food. If Max spends a total of $518.40 per month, what is his monthly pay? (let x be his pay, use algebra)

  • Math Algebra -

    amount spent=518.40
    .6*Pay+.12*Pay=518.40

    Pay(.72)=518.4

    pay=518.4/.72

  • Math Algebra -

    but im supposed to use algebra

  • Math Algebra -

    Put x in for Pay, goodness

  • Math Algebra -

    so like this .6x + .12x = 518.40

    Omg im soooooo confused

  • Math Algebra -
