Mr. Thomas spent 1600.00 of his savings on a TV and 2/5 of the remainder on a refrigerator. He had 1/3 of his original amount of savings left. What was Mr. Thomas's original savings?

  • Math -

    s - 1600 - 2/5 (s-1600) = s/3
    s = 3600

    check:
    he spent 1600 leaving 2000
    he spent 800 leaving 1200
    1200 = 3600/3

  • Math -

    wow this was very confusing
