I assumed there are no charge in each withdrawals. So, you just have to subtract 237,498 four times from 2,060,725.

2060725 - (4)(237498) = 1110733

First question: About how much was left of his savings? 1,110,733
Second question: Did he withdraw almost half of his savings? Yes.
Third question: Why or why not? Because half of 2060725 is 1,030,362.5 and he withdraw 949,992. What's written on the question is "almost" and it's quite near that value so I answered yes.

A more practical answer to the third question, "why or why not?": Maybe because something came up and there was an accident and Mr. Ocampo really needed the money so that's why he withdrawed it. ^^

2,060,725 - 4(237,498) = amount left in savings account.

2,060,725 - 949,992 = 1,110,733 ⇒ amount left

Round off the total savings before withdrawal, what is left and the total amount withdrawn to the largest place value:

2,060,725 ⇒ 2,000,000  (total amount before withdrawal)

1,110,733 ⇒ 1,000,000  (total amount left, half of the total savings
                           before withdrawal)

949,992   ⇒   1,000,000  (total amount withdrawn, which is half of the
                       total savings before withdrawal)

1) 1,110,733 - left of his savings

2) Yes, he withdrew almost half of his savings.
     949,992  rounded off to highest place value is 1,000,000

3) The amount withdrawn is half of the savings.  By rounding off all the values (see above solution), the amount withdrawn (see answer item 2) is almost half of the total savings before any withdrawal took place.


Aha! So, that is the reason. :D
thank you po
