4/5 m * 1/3 = 4/15 m

m - 1/5 m - 4/15 m = 24

m = 45

**luckybee**, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 7:10pmWhen working backwards we first need to deal with 1/3. so since it says 1/3 of the remainder, does this mean to divide 24 by 1/3

**Steve**, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 11:08pmif r is the remainder, then

24 = 2/3 r

r = 36

r = 4/5 m, so

m = 5/4 * 36 = 45
