let her savings be x

She spends x/4 on bike and x/4 - 1/3 on the car.

To find how much she spent on both you add them

x/4 + x/4 -1/3 = x/2-1/3 =**(3x-2)/6** - Nov 3rd 2012, 09:06 AMGeorgetownRe: first post in this forum

I would state the fraction $\displaystyle f$ of her savings spent as:

$\displaystyle f=\frac{1}{4}+\left(1-\frac{1}{3} \right)\cdot\frac{1}{4}=\frac{1}{4}\left(1+\frac{2 }{3} \right)=\frac{1}{4}\cdot\frac{5}{3}=?$ - Nov 3rd 2012, 01:26 PMDevenoRe: first post in this forum
