Dean spent 1/6 of his money on sports shoes and $30 on a shoe bag.

He spent 1/5 of the remainder on a jersey and saved the rest. He saved $236.

a) What was the cost of the Jersey?

b) How much more did he spent on sports shoes than on jersey?

x - x/6 = 5x/6

1/5 * (5x/6 - 30) = x/6 - 6

(5x/6 - 30) - (x/6 - 6)

5x/6 - 30 - x/6 + 6

$(4x/6 - 24)

 

$(4x/6 - 24) = $236

4x/6 - 24 = 236

4x/6 = 236 + 24 = 260

x = (260 * 6)/4

x = 340

= 390/6 - 6 = $59

$390/6 - $59 = $6

(a) $59

(b) $6
