If Ahmad has $ 7u left after giving $244 to his mother. You can imagine 7u as 7 boxes with size $ u.

$ 4u was spent on book and left with $3u. Pls take note $ 3u represented 1/3 of total money,

So in total Ahmad has $ 9u.

244 + 7u = 9u

2u = 244

u = 122      

9u = 1098

So Ahmad had $1098 at first.
