# Add and Subtract Money

Kevin writes a check for $52.75, but he has only $32.45 in his checking account.

Because Kevin’s balance is now less than $0, his bank charges him a penalty fee of $20.

- What is the balance in Kevin’s account now?

## Hint:

Start with $32.45.

- Do you need to add or subtract $52.75 to represent the check that Kevin wrote?
- Do you need to add or subtract the penalty fee?
