I got a different answer.

450 * 0.3 = 135

450 - 135 = 315

315 * 0.8 = 252

dont you mean 315 x 0.2?

    We could do it this way.

    315 * 0.2 = 63

    315 - 63 = 252

    I just saved a step in my original problem.

    In other words, she had 80 percent of the money left after she spent part of it.
