hello, help with my homework please! James went shopping one Saturday afternoon. He spent 1/2 of the money he had on a new streo system. He spent half of the money he had left on a new suit. Half of what remained, he spent on a new sweater. Half of what remained, he spent on a new CD. If he went home with $15.00, how much money did he have to begin with? I need to show my work. Teach me please!!
