Question:
Mr Wu earned $2365 in January.
He earned $375 more in February than in January. If he spend $4250 in the two months and saved the rest, how much did he save?
Hi
In January you earned $2365. In February you earned $375 more than $2365. So you can calculate the Feb earnings. Now that you know Jan earnings and Feb earnings you can calculate the total earnings. But you know that you spent $4250 so you can calculate how much is left after you deduct the amount spent.
