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

then

4x = 60, so dividing both sides by 4, I get:

x = 15$

so the original amount of money of Ofelia is 15$
