Bertie has just had a big win at the lottery.

He spends 4/5 of his money on a large house.

He spends 3/4 of his remaining money on a luxury yacht.

He spends 2/3 of his remaining money on a trip into space.

He gives the remaining $50,000 to charity.

How much money did he win?

x - (4x/5 + 3x/20 + 2x/60) = 50000

 

x = 3,000,000
