### Solve it - Question 9

Dear All

Due to some unavoidable circumstances, i was not able to blog for many days. Really missed it!
Anyways, I have a problem for you .Try it...

Sumit went to the shopping centre to buy supplies for his mathematics project. He spent half of what he had plus Rs. 2 in the firts shop, half of what he then had left plus Rs. 1 in the second shop; half of what he then had left plus Re. 1 in the third shop and, in the fourth shop half of all he had left. Three Rs. were left over. How much money did he start with?

ANSWER:
Have fun and enjoy mathematics.

#### 3 comments:

1. Is the answer 80 rupees?

2. well... the answer is Rs. 64.
Try again...

3. got it! missed out that in the last shop 1/2 of the money was spent , took it as half+1!
