Ofelia has a certain amount of money. If she spends 12$, then she has 1/5th of the original amount left. How much money did Ofelia have originally?
Please note that you have to solve this equation below:
x - 12 = x/5
where x is the amount of money of Ofelia.
multiply both sides by 5 , I get:
5 x - 60 = x
4x = 60, so dividing both sides by 4, I get:
x = 15$
so the original amount of money of Ofelia is 15$
