## THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER 👇

B) \$ 1,009.81

Explanation:

When we start on the problem, Richard has \$ 944.88 in his account.

After paying his rent, Check # 204 to Blue Sky Apartments for \$ 455.00, he has 944.88-455 = \$ 489.88.

After paying, an automatic deposit for \$ 390.36, he has 489.88 + 390.36 = \$ 880.24.

After going out to eat, debiting Benny’s Hamburgers and Fries for \$ 9.20, he has 880.24-9.20 = \$ 871.04.

After making his car payment, Check # 205 for \$ 251.59, he has 871.04-251.59 = \$ 619.45.

After paying a paid deposit for \$ 390.36, he has 619.45 + 390.36 = \$ 1009.81.
