# If Chameli Had Rs 600 Left After Spending 75% of Her Money, How Much Did She Have in the Beginning? - Mathematics

If Chameli had Rs 600 left after spending 75% of her money, how much did she have in the beginning?

#### Solution

Let the amount of money which Chameli had in the beginning be x.

It is given that after spending 75% of Rs x, she was left with Rs 600.

Therefore,

(100 − 75)% of x = Rs 600

Or, 25 % of x = Rs 600

25/100 xx x = Rs 600

x = Rs(600 xx 100/25) = Rs  2400

Thus, she had Rs 2400 in the beginning.
