  1. It is always a good idea to check your typing for spelling and gammar, that way we don't have to second-guess what you mean.

    let the amount of her money be x
    she spent 1/3 x on the wallet, leaving her with (2/3)x
    She spent (1/4) of that on a belt
    she spent (1/4(2/3)x = (1/6)x on the belt

    amount spent: = (1/3)x + (1/6)x = (1/2)x

    so she is left with 1/2 of her starting money

    check:
    suppose she had $60
    she spent (1/3) of that or $20, leaving her with $40
    she spent (1/4) of that or $10 , leaving her with $30, which is 1/2 of what she started with
