# PLZ Check My Math?

Sorry! Another rates/proportions question!

"Myles mows lawns during the summer to earn money. Since he is trying to save money for a car, he tries not to spend very much of it. In fact, his goal is to save \$5 for every \$7 he makes.
If Myles made \$128 this week, how much can he spend?"
ANSWER: \$36.57

So he saves \$5 out of every \$7 he makes, which leaves \$2 out of \$7 to spend.
128 × 2 = 256
256 ÷ 7 = 36.5714218... = \$36.57
Am I right?
