    In this question, the first information that we get is that Kayla spent half of her weekly allowance in clothes. On cleaning the oven Kayla gets $4. Finally Kayla is left with $12.

    Let us assume that the weekly allowance of Kayla = x

    Amount of allowance saved after buying clothes = x/2

    Then we can go for the equation

    x/2 + 4 = 12

    x + (4 * 2) = 12 * 2

    x + 8 = 24

    x = 24 - 8

    = 16

    So we can now see that the weekly allowance of Kayla is $16
