Work Step by Step

Look at key words given in the question to identify what numbers to add and what to subtract. "overdrawn" indicates a negative bank balance, hence this value (23.77 dollars) is subtracted. "charged a fee" implies money taken out to pay, hence this value (29 dollars) is deducted. "deposited" implies money being put into the account, hence this value (583.29 dollars) is added. "withdraw" implies money taken out, hence this value (50 dollars) is subtracted. Combining the above statements, we form the following equation: -23.77-29+583.29-50 Solving the above equation gives $480.52.
