Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

 

  1/3 of 75= 75/3

                 =25

remainder = 75 - 25

                 =50


   1/5 of 50= 10

remainder = 50 -10

                 =40


therefore the money left is $40

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
