  1. 2/3 +1/4 = 8/12 + 3/12 = 11/12
    so 1/12

    I assumed you mean 1/4 of original and not 1/4 of what was left after spending 2/3
    If the second choice then
    1/3 left after first week
    1/4 * 1/3 = 1/12
    3/4 of 1/3 left = 3/12

  2. Holiday money = $X.
    Spent: 2x/3 + x/4 = 8x/12 + 3x/12 = 11x/12.
    x - 11x/12 = 12x/12 - 11x/12 = x/12 or 1/12 of her money was brought home.
