Sarin’s father had $2000. He spent 10% of his money on clothings and 20% of it on a washing machine. How much money had he left?

 Solution:

UPQ398-1

            Per the model

                        10units = 2000

                        1 unit = $200

Alternative solution:

            The percentage of money left = 100% – 10% – 20% = 70%

                                    100% ==> $ 2000

                                    10% ==> $ 200
