Comment on Word Problems with Fractions

I solved the candy question slightly different, but still got $4 as the answer. 1/3+5/9=24/27 (spent on movie and hat). So the remainder she spent on candy is 3/27. Then i multiplied 3/27*36 and got $4. Thanks!

Perfectly valid approach!

Brent,

I have a doubt on the question 189 from the O.G. (2017 edition). Could you explain me in a different answer from the OG Answer Explanations, please?

Thank you in advance.
