Aaron spent 1/3 of his salary and an additional $350 of his salary on a computer. He also used 3/4 of his remaining salary and another $60 of his salary to pay bills. In the end, he had $240 left. How much was Aaron's salary?

Write equations!

Let S be Aaron's regular salary.

1/4(2/3S - 350)-60 = 240.

1/4(2/3S - 350) = 300

2/3S-350 = 1200

2/3S = 1550

S = 2325
