Jane spent 9% of her savings on a downpayment for a car.
If she paid $1599, how much in savings does she have?
Let x = amt she has in her savings originally
Write an equation for just what it says
.09x = 1599
divide both sides by .09
x = $17,766.67, originally
We want to know how much in her savings account now (after taking out $1599)
17766.67 - 1599 = 16,167.67 in her saving account now
