Answer: Over the summer, Rebecca saved \$2,286 while working at the town pool = +2286.00 First she gave 1/3 of that money to her parents to repay a loan = -(1/3)*2286.00 = -762.00 She then spent \$121 on clothes and \$420 on books for college = -(121 + 420) = -541.00 Rebecca then earned \$7 per hour for 8 hours with her friends = 7*8 = +56.00 Rebecca is going to use the money she has left to start a checking account. How much money will she be depositing in her checking account? = +2286.00 - 762.00 - 541.00 + 56.00 = +1039 The final answer is: Rebecca will deposit \$1039.00 in her checking account.
