Question 99

Travis received an allowance. With a fifth of the money, he bought a ticket to a movie and with a quartar of what is left he bought a slice of pizza?

A. The price of movie ticket
B. The price of slice of pizza

Solution

Let the amount received by travis as allowance = 100

Amount spent on movie ticket = $$\frac{1}{5}$$ x 100 = 20 

Remaining amount = 100x - 20x = 80x

Amount spent on a slice of pizza = $$\frac{1}{4}$$ x 80= 20

Amounts spent on movie ticket and slice of pizza is same

Hence, option C is the correct answer.
