Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, since we don't know the original price we'll let it be "x". Now, let's translate the following statement. Claire spent 3/8 of her money (x) and found she had left = 24.00 now let's rewrite it and you'll get: 3/8(x) = 24 solve for x and you'll find how much she had ^_^
