Chapter 9 - Basic Algebra - 9.2 Adding and Subtracting Signed Numbers - 9.2 Exercises: 93

Answer

$259

Work Step by Step

Look at key words given in the question to identify what numbers to add and what to subtract. "had" indicates the original bank account balance, hence this value (37 dollars) is added. "payment" implies money taken out, hence this value (626 dollars) is deducted. "deposited" implies money being put into the account, hence this value (908 dollars) is added. "took out" also implies money taken out, hence this value (60 dollars) is deducted. Combining the above statements, we form the following equation: 37-626+908-60 Solving the above equation gives $259.
