Answer:$96

Step-by-step explanation:Margo’s spending in terms of her paycheck (p) is described as …

dress + shoes + present = $60

0.25p + (1/8)p + $24 = $60

3/8p = $36 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . collect terms, subtract $24

p = (8/3)($36) = $96 . . . . . . multiply by 8/3

Margo’s paycheck was $96.
