Alright, 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 re-write it and you'll get: 3/8(x) = 24 solve for x and you'll find how much she had ^_^

so x-(3/8)*x = 5x/8

sorry 3x/8 = P24.00

  • anonymous
you're supposed to get x = 64 ^_^ give it a try

SO 3x = P24.00 * 8

x = (P24.00*8)/3 = 192.00/3

so x = P64.00
