Karen spent 1/4 of her money on 2 fish burgers and 6 chicken wings for a party. The cost of each fish burger was three times the cost of each chicken wing. She bought some more fish burgers with 2/3 of her remaining money. How many fish burgers did she buy altogether?

fish burger => **fb **chicken wing => **cw**

2 fb = 6 cw 2 fb + 6 cw = $1/4 **2 fb = 1/8**

Remaining money = 3/4

3/4(2/3) = **1/2**

So, she bought **8** more fish burgers with 2/3 of her remaining money.

Cost of fish burger is 3 times cost of chicken wing

She spent 1/4 of her money on 6 wings

and 2 f.b.

Total = 12

1/4 of her money = 12

4/4 of her money = 48

Remainder of her money = 48 - 12

= 36

She spent 2/3 of remainder on fish burger.

2/3 of remainder = 2/3 * 36

= 24

She spent 24 on rush burgers.

Since f.b. Costs 6 each,

24 ÷ 6 = 4 fish burgers
