Vincent spent $25 less than 1/4 of his money on a basketball. He then spent 3/5 of the remaining

money and an additional $17 on a bag. He then spent $18 of his money on food and had $65

left. How much money did Vincent have at first?


(a)      How much is the basketball?


(b)      How much did he have at first?

x = amount at first 

{x  -  (1/4x-25) } *2/5  -17 - 18   = 65

(3/4x +25) 2/5  =100

x = 300 dollars

Basketball = (300 / 4) - 25 = $ 50 smiley
