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. ^^

Solution:

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Round off the total savings before withdrawal, what is left and the total amount withdrawn to the largest place value: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949,992   ⇒   1,000,000  (total amount withdrawn, which is half of the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)
