Sorry Got this straight from my math book!
just write it out and add and subtract and you got it.
october, november, december, january, half of feburary
4.5 times 2735 is 12307.5 income
she has to pay all of feburary expenses so,
5 times 2120 is 10600
12307.5 - 10600 = 1707.5 money to spend
that is enough to cover the 1259 vacation and have some left over
