Jean deposited a check for $625, wrote two for $68.74 and
$29.95 and used her debit card to pay for a purchase of $57.65. How has her
account balance changed?

I am a little lost, I understand the deposit BUT from what I understand she wrote 2 check in the amount of $68.74 each and then 2 checks for $29.95 and then used her debet card for $57.65?
Or was it just 2 checks all together 1 for $68.74 and 1 for $29.95 and then used her debet card for $57.65?


Unfortunately, from the way the problem is stated, it is not clear which applies. However, since it is very unlikely to have two different checks both duplicated in the exact same amount, I would favor your latter interpreation.

Even so, a suggestion would be to note the two different interpretations and solve for both.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

    Jean deposited a check for $625, wrote two for $68.74 and $29.95 and used her debit card to pay for a purchase of $57.65. How has her account balance changed? Do I subtract 68.74 twice, since it said two for 68.74?
