dee went shopping she had 75 dollars to spend. At one store, she bought a dress and a tube of lipstick. The lipstick was half the price of the dress. she then spent half of what she had left on a pair of shoes. This left her with 13 dollars. How much was the dress and the lipstick?

  • math -

    75 - (d+d/2) - (75 - (d + d/2))/2 = 13

    dress = 98/3 = $32.67
    lipstick = 49/3 = $16.33
    shoes = $13.00

    check:
    starting with 75,
    dress+lipstick = 49
    now she has 26
    spent half of that = 13 on shoes,
    leaving 13
    remaining: 13

    Thank you it was right on the money... so to speak.
