Try working backwards.

Tell me what you get.

x - (2/3) x = 18
can you continue?

IGreen, i divided 18 by 1/3, and i got 6. What do i do now?

IGreen, i divided 18 by 1/3, and i got 6. What do i do now?

18 / 1/3 is not 6
when diving fractions invert the divisor and multiply
|dw:1436368531569:dw|

\(\sf 18 \div \dfrac{1}{3} \rightarrow 18 \times 3\)

yes

@welshfella But what about the 1/2 thing?

Yes, now do the same thing with 1/2.
\(\sf 54 \div \dfrac{1}{2} \rightarrow 54 \times 2\)

Yes, that's our answer.

No problem.

Oh..you're right @welshfella I made a mistake..

She spent 50% of it and was left with $10..
10 * 2 = ?

umm, 20 is 4/5 of her original amount.

No..4/5 would be 80.

Correct, that's our answer.

Oh, wait..I think I made another mistake >.<

Lol

Correct^
For some reason, I kept looking at the question all the way at the top..lol.
