Ashley saves eleven dollars more than one-fourth of her paycheck every month. Connor saves seven dollars less than three-eighths of his paycheck every month. How much more would Connor and Ashley need to make to have the same amount saved?

Answers

The amount Connor and Ashley need to make to have the same amount saved is $144

Savings

Let

Amount of paycheck = x

Ashley:

1/4x + 11

Connor:

3/8x – 7

Equate both savings

1/4x + 11 = 3/8x – 7

11 + 7 = 3/8x – 1/4x

18 = (3x-2x) / 8

18 = 1/8x

x = 18 ÷ 1/8

x = 18 × 8/1

x = $144

Therefore, the amount Connor and Ashley need to make to have the same amount saved is $144
