Are you wondering how to solve this problem? You can set up an equation: 1/3(x)+ 2/5(x) = 60 where x represents the original amount of money Jane had.
Hi Paula and Lauren. I read your question Paula and your answer Lauren. Lauren, I think that the right answer is different.
x represents the original amount of money indeed, but Jane spent 1/3(x) + 2/5(x). This amount that she spent was subtracted from the original amount x and $60 remained. This is expressed as follows:
x - [ 1/3(x) + 2/5(x) ] = 60 =>
x = 225
