**Reiny**, Wednesday, May 12, 2010 at 7:14amShe spends 3/5 of her money, so she had 2/5 of it left

Then she spends (3/5) of her remaining money, which would leave her with (2/5)(2/5) = 4/25 of her money

so 4/25 of her money equals 8

1/25 of her money equals 8/4

then 25/25 of the money equals 25(8/4) = 50
