Q: Cathy spent 3/4 of her pocket money.  If she spent 1/3 of it for a movie, 1/6 for books and the rest for a dress, what part of her pocket money did she spent on the dress?

Can you please assist me to get it done?

I am not sure about the answer but i guess it is 1/2

1/3of3/4=1/3*3/4=1/4

1/6of3/4=1/6*3/4=1/8

money spent on dress = 3/4-(1/4+1/8)

=3/4-3/8=3/8

therefore 3/8 is spent on dresses

What PART OF money was spent on dresses=3/8 / 3/4 as ___ *3/4=3/8

=3/8 / 4/3=1/2

As i said, i am not sure abou the answer. but i hope this helped you.

let the total  money be 12
the 3/4 of 12=9
1/3of 12=4
1/6 of 12=2
so total money spent =9
out of 9 she spent 6 on movie and books 
3RS left 
so the money spent on dress is 1/4 of the pocket money 



not very sure but till i think it would help
