Liam allocated 225 dollars per day for his accommodation and food during his vacation. If Liam’s vacation lasted for two days, determine how much money he spent.

Liam allocated 225 dollars per day. And his vacation lasted two days. To find out the total amount he spent, if we assume that he spent all of the money allocated, we would multiply the money he allocated for every day by the number of days he was there, in this case 225 times two.

To make the math a little bit easier, we might break up 225 into 200 and 25. 200 times two equals 400. And 25 times two equals 50. Adding those pieces back together, we see that 225 times two equals 450.

And that means Liam spent 450 dollars on his vacation.
