George had $120 to buy new baseball equipment. He spent a third his money on a glove, a fourth of his money on a bat, a sixth of his money on a cap and the remaining money on baseballs. How much money did he spend on each item?

1/3 * 120 = 40

1/4 * 120 = 30

1/6 * 120 = 20

1-(1/3 + 1/4 + 1/6) = 1 - (9/12)=1/4

1/4 * 120 = 30

George had $120 to buy new baseball.

Money spent on glove = 1/3 (120)40 = 40

Moeny spent on bat = 1/4 (120)30 = 30

Money spent on cap = 1/6 (120)20 = 20

∴ Remaining money on basketball = 120 - (40 + 30 + 20)

                                                       = 120 - 90

Remaining money on baseballs = $30
