To determine

## To find: the amount of money did he inherit.

Expert Solution

$45,000 . ### Explanation of Solution Given: Craig is saving to buy home and his saving is$22000 .

He inherits some money from uncle and combine to it.

Again, total money investment in a lucky draw for doubling the money and the total amount after lucky draw is 134,000 .

Calculation:

Let the money inherited from uncle be x .

Therefore, total money before investment is $22000+x . Now, total money after investment is$2(22000+x) .

And it is given that 2(22000+x)=134,000

Now, solve the equation, then:

2(22000+x)=134,000(22000+x)=67,000{divide both sides by 2}x=6400022,000{subtract both sides by 22000}x=45,000

Therefore, the amount of money did he inherit is \$45,000
