Rose decided to create a flower bed in front house. Onehalf of her flower bed is planted with pink tulips. She plants threefourths of the rest of the ground with purple iris. After that, she plants orange marigolds in onehalf of what remains. The rest of the garden is planted with red gladiolas. What percent of her garden is planted in red gladiolas?
I think that i can do the picture form of it, but i'm not really sure how to do the math part of it.
Thanks!

Let Total be x
1) Pink (1/2)x remain (1/2)x
2) pink (3/4)*(1/2)x remain (1/4)(1/2)*x
3) Orange (1/2)(1/4)(1/2)x
remain: (1/2)(1/4)(1/2)x
So the red is (1/2)(1/4)(1/2)x
Which is one16th of the whole thing, which is 16.7%
