Hi, need help with this qn.tq!
Mr Gopal spent 1/5 of his money on 5 mechanical pencils and 12 highlighters. The cost of each mechanical pencil is 3 times the cost of each highlighter. He bought some more of the same mechanical pencils with 1/3 of the remaining money.
a) What fraction of his money was spent on the additional mechanical pencils?
b) How many mechanical pencils did he buy altogether?
