An Income And Expenditure Problem (Posted on 2006-10-17) Difficulty: 2 of 5
The year Mr. and Mrs. Fleischer were married, Mrs. Fleischer made 6 dollars for every 7 dollars that Mr. Fleischer made, but she only saved 1 dollar for every 7 that he saved. (Assume the remaining money for each of them is equal spent on expenses for this year.)

The next year (due to spiraling gasoline costs) Mrs. Fleischer only saved 25 dollars for every 36 she had saved the year before. If this year, they both spent the same proportion of their income as last year, how much did they spend together on expenses this year for every 1 dollar last year? (Assume neither one got a raise from year to year.)
