In the morning, Jaffar sold some muffins at 4 for $11. In the afternoon, he received $600 from the sale of 5/6 of the remaining muffins at $2 each. In the end, he had 1/8 of the total number of muffins left. How much money did Jaffar receive from the sale of the muffins in the morning?

No. of muffins in the afternoon (sold)

  = 600/2 = 300

  let x = total muffins left in

                the afternoon

   300 = 5/6x  ; x = 300/5/6 = 360

total muffins left in the end

    = 360 - 300 = 60

total muffins = 60/1/8 = 480

Money Jaffar received from the morning sale

= (480 - 60 - 300)/4 * $11 = $330
