Answer:August=$350September=$560

October=$210

November= $280

Step-by-step explanation:Total amount left to save $1400.

We calculate the amount save each mount since we are already given the percentages.

For the month of August she saves 25% of $1400, we convert the percentage to equivalent cash

[tex]\frac{25}{100}*1400\\=350[/tex]

for the month of August, she saved $350,

Next For the month of September she saves 40% of $1400, we convert the percentage to equivalent cash

[tex]\frac{40}{100}*1400\\=560[/tex]

for the month of September, she saved $560,

Next For the month of October she saves 15% of $1400, we convert the percentage to equivalent cash

[tex]\frac{15}{100}*1400\\=210[/tex]

for the month of October, she saved $210,

total amount saved by October = $350+$560+$210=$1120

Amount saved by November=1400-1120=$280
