Can you help me with this: Paul's budget for food is $10 more than 1/3 of his total budget. If $100 was alloted for food, what was the total budget?

Ana if you have to change the 1/3 to a decimal, can you help me with that too?

Thank you!!

100-10= 1/3 B

I wouldn't change it to a decimal. Multiply both sides of the equation by 3
300- 30 = B
