    Answer:

    $13,500.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x represent money spent on monthly bills.

    We have been given that last month a museum received €21000 in donations. The ratio of bills to donations was 5:14.

    We will use proportions to solve our given problem.

    \frac{\text{Bills}}{\text{Donations}}=\frac{5}{14}

    \frac{x}{21000}=\frac{5}{14}  

    \frac{x}{21000}*21000=\frac{5}{14}*21000

    x=5*1500

    x=7500

    Now, we will subtract $7500 from donations to find the amount spent on new exhibitions as:

    \$21,000-\$7500=\$13,500

    Therefore, they spent $13,500 on new exhibitions.
