To solve this problem, we can first do 8 + 5. 8 + 5 = 13.

Next, divide 1040 by 13. 1040 / 13 = 80. The 80 represents every 'part' of the ratio (in this case the 'parts' are 5 and 8).

Finally, mulitply 5 * 80, and 8 * 80.

5 * 80 is the amount of money Miss Penny put into her savings, and 8 * 80 is the amount she spent.

(You still need to simplify those expressions to get the answer)

I hope this helped! If I made a mistake somewhere or you want me to explain more on why I did those steps, please lmk!

You're welcome. However, I will not straight up just give you the answer because I already gave you an explanation on how to solve this problem. This site is meant for learning, not for people to just get an answer then leave.
