Question

Grace and Helen had $470. Grace spent $56 on a dress and Helen spent 1/5 of her money on a bag. In the end, they had the same amount of money left. How much money did Grace have at first?

Answer

amount of money Helen had left ——- 4u
(4u x 2) + 1u + 56 = 9u + 56 ——- 470
1u ——- (470 – 56)/9 = 46
4u + 56 ——- 4 x 46 + 56 = 240

Ans : $240.

Take note I forgot to put the $ sign infront of the answer. So the actual answer should be $240.. Else may be penalised for 1 or 2 marks.
