Terrance saved 4/5 of his paycheck and spent 2/3 of the remaining money. He was then left with $2. What was the original value of Terrance's paycheck?

A bit of fractions here. Fine. He saved 4/5, leaving 1/5, then spent 2/3 of that. So what he's left with is 1/3 of 1/5 of the paycheck, or 1/3 x 1/5 = 1/15. This is $2. If 1/15 is $2, then the full paycheck is 15 x $2, or $30.
