On Friday I posted this puzzle….
A man spends a fifth of what is in his wallet, and then one fifth of what remained. He has spent a total of £72. What was the amount originally in his wallet?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.
The man originally had £200 in his wallet! Did you solve it?
