Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just basically guess and check, a number that can be divided by 2, and divided by 5. hald of 50 is 25, 1/5 of 50 is 10, therefore, 2/5 is 20. and you have the last 5 given to you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it $24? because 1/3 is 2/6, i just added the fractions to get 1/2. so half of his money went towards the hat and socks, and the other half , the tie?
