sheila spent onesixth of her money in one store. in the next store, she spent three times as she spent in first store, and had 80.00 left. how much money did she have at the start?

She spends 1/6 + 3/6 = 2/3 of her money. If she has 80 left, that is 1/3 of what she started out with.
That would be 240.00
