# Imagine that $1 = €1.40. Sam spends €50 and has €34 left. How many dollars did he start with?

**Solution:**

Amount spent by Sam = €50

Amount left with Sam = €34

Initial amount Sam had = 50 + 34 = €84

It is given that

$1 = €1.40

So the dollars Sam started with = 84/1.40 = $ 60.

Therefore, Sam started with $ 60.
