Marcus spent $36 on some plates and 3/4 of his remaining money on some cups. If he had 1/6 of his original sum of money left, how much money did he have at first?

36 = 1/4x = 144 on some cups

 

36 = 1/6x = 216 his original money

 

216 - 144 = 72 right now

 

$72 + $36 = $108

 

$108 he have at first

x = origianl amount

(x -36) 1/4  = 1/6 x        ( spending 3/4 leaves 1/4)

x = 108 dollars oriinally

1x = 1/6 original 

 

original sum of money = 6x

 

6x = 4x + 36

  1x = 18 

6x = $108
