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?
