k so when i posted this earlier, i didn't understand how to do it the way that writeacher showed me so can someone else help, thanks
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)

amount spent=518.40
.6*Pay+.12*Pay=518.40
Pay(.72)=518.4
pay=518.4/.72 
but im supposed to use algebra

Put x in for Pay, goodness

so like this .6x + .12x = 518.40
Omg im soooooo confused 
oh never mind i get it now, thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!!!!
