Alfred spent 1/4 of his money on food,1/3 on clothing and saved the rest.If he saved #72,000.How much did he spend on food?

  • Maths -

    the rest would be 1 - 1/4 - 1/3 = 5/12

    so (5/12)x = 72000
    x = 72000(12/5) = 172800

    spend on food = (1/4)(172800) = 43200

    curious what currency # is.
