My daughter is struggling with her algebra home work especiall with the word problems i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to help her.. for example she had a word problem that stated

if you have an income of 4140.00 and you budget 2/10 for rent and 14/20 for other needs how much would you have left..Or how much is alloted maybe thats it ?? please help.

I think that is how it went..

she is also having problems solving equations like

__4__+

__7__

__11__

n N 8

how would you go about solving these types of equations.

thank you for your help
