Andrea earned $75. She spent 1/3 on a shirt. Then, she spent 1/5 of the remaining. How much did Andrea have left after these purchases?

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


 1/3 of 75 = 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.
