As Joe spent k cents and is left with r cents now, he would have had k + r cents initially

Since we are asked to find his allowance in dollars, it would be $$\frac{k + r}{100}$$ dollars.

Therefore, Joe's allowance in dollars is $$\frac{k + r}{100}$$ (Option D)

Total allowance= (k+r) cents
\$1=100 cents
So, total allowance=(k+r)/100 dollars

Joe’s total allowance is k + r cents, or (k + r)/100 dollars.
