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
I’ve used Assignment Expert twice now, and I’m a full fledged fan. This morning I had a crunching 7 hour deadline for a huge programming assignment I forgot was due, and turned to them for help. The estimate was affordable and easy to pay for through PayPal. Shortly after, an expert got to work on the problem at hand. The operator was in constant contact with me throughout the entire process, and everything went quickly and smoothly. After looking through the assignment, I was happy to find that everything ran very smoothly, and no shortcuts were taken/no requirements were omitted. I wish I could say more about this service. It’s truly a game changer and has saved my back more than once now.
