Cathy spent 3/4 of her pocket money. If she spent 1/3 of it on a movie, 1/6 on books and the rest on a dress, what part of her pocket money did she spend on the dress?

Tricky question...

Let's write down some numbers:

Cathy's pocket money = $100

Money she spent = $75

Movie = $25

Books = $12.50

Dress = $37.50

The part of the pocket money she used to buy a dress = **3/8**
