    It refers to how much money they have, whether it's income or savings or both.

    I'm not a teacher.

    Hi,

    Here are a few words concerning the question in the original post above.

    means = all things, such as money, property or goods having economic values, assets, capital, fortune, resources, wealth, wherewithal.

    They have the means to buy such a large house.

    They lived within their means.

    I live beyond my means.

    You are a person of moderate (ordinary) means.

    Regards,

    V.
