Simon went to the store to buy new school supplies. Simon spent 1/4 of his money on pencils and paper and 1/2 of his money on a backpack.

If Simon has \$12.50 leftover, how much did the backpack cost?

x - 1/4x - 1/2x = 12.5

1/4x = 12.5

x = 12.5 / 0.25

x = 50

1/2 * 50 = _______ cost of backpack
