Mall MadnessMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
Elizabeth headed to the mall with $60. If she spends 1/4 of her money on clothes, $30 on CD's, and 10% of her original money pigging out at the food court, how much cash will she have left?
AnswerShe will have nine dollars left.
Elizabeth spent $15 on clothes (1/4 of $60 = $15), $30 on CD's, and $6 on food (10% of $60 = $6). Add this together, and she spent a total of 51 dollars at the mall. Subtract this from her original 60, and she is left with $9.
