Mr.Wood went to the stores to buy school supplies for his children. He spent half of his money plus $5 at Store A. He then spent half of the remaining money plus $10 at Store B. At the end he had $25 left. How much money did Mr. Wood start with?

  • Math -

    If he started with x, then after A he had
    x/2 - 5 left. After B he had
    (x/2-5)/2-10 left


    x - (x/2+5) - (x/2-5)/2-10 = 25
    x = 150

    after A = had 70
    after B he had 25
