    first u may add the payments given:
    that is 57.00
    +125.00
    ---------
    Totally spend = 182.00
    secondly
    add the deposit amount and start balance
    785.63
    + 57.25
    ---------
    Amount totally 842.88

    then subtract the amount, that is
    842.88
    182.00
    ---------
    660.88
    At last,This is the amount balance in mary's current account
