A clown visted three shops. He spent $25 at the first shop. At the second shop, he spent half of his remaining money. At the third shop, he spent 1/3 of his remaining money and had $60 left. How much money did the clown have originally?
Let's consider that clown had x dollars. At the first shop he spent $25. At the second shop he spent half of his remaining money - ((x-25)/2). At the third shop, he spent 1/3 of his remaining money - (x-25-((x-25)/2)/3 and had $60 left. So we can write down an equation and find x:
25+((x-25)/2)+((x-25-((x-25)/2)/3)+60 = x 150+3x-75+2x-50-x+25+360 = 6x 50+4x+360 = 6x 410 = 2x x = 205
The assignments were completed in a timely manner and were complete. I missed a few points on small little nit pick things that my professor didn't like but I still got a rocking grade and was very satisfied! The price and time was what kept me coming back for more assignments! Thanks so much!
