# Math Help - Percentage question #1.

Mr. Lee earned a fixed salary every month last year. In March, he spent 40% of his monthly salary. In April, he spent 20% more than the amount he spent in March and saved the remaining \$2600 in the bank. What was his monthly salary?

2. Let X be the monthly salary.
$
0.4x = \mbox{spent in march} \\ \quad
0.4x * 1.2 = \mbox{spent in april} \\ \quad
x(1 - (0.4*1.2)) = 2600 \\ \quad
x = ??
