A woman had $200. she went to the meatshop, a drug store and a book store. she spent four(4) times as much money in the meatshop as in the drug store. she spent $15 less at the book store than at the drug store she then had $5.00 left.
USING X to represent the amount spent at the drugstore, express in algebraic terms:
(1) The amount spent at the meatshop
(2) The amount spent at the bookshop
(3) Obtain an equation for the total money spent and calculate the amount spent at the drugstore.
money spent in meat shop=4xRs
money spent in drugstore= xRs
money spent in book store=x-15Rs
