Every month. Andie spent 1/5 of his salary on food and 2/3 of the remaining salary on transport. After spending his salary on food and transport, he gave 50% of the rest of the salary to his parents and saved the rest of the $350 How much did he spend on food and transport every month?

Call his salary,  S

 

S - (1/5)S - (2/3)S =   (2/15)S =   amount he had after food and  transport

 

(2/15)S  - (1/2)(2/15)S  =  350

 

(2/15)S - (1/15)S = 350

 

(1/15)S = 350

 

S = 5250

 

Amt spent on food and  transport  = (13/15) (5250)   = $4550
