Jen spends half his money on lunch and then spends $1.50 for a magazine. He uses one third of what he has left to pay for the bus ride home, then gives his little brother a quarter.If Jen has three nickles and two quarters left, how much money did he have before lunch?

Let x = original money
.5x  1.50  (.5x1.50)/3 .25 = .35
Solve for x.
