A customer paid you $600 for construction work, out of which, 3/5 of the total amount was spent on the purchase of materials and 1/5 of the remaining was spent on travelling. How much is left after all the deductions ?

A. $120

B. $190

C. $192

D. $240

**Answer : **C.

## Explanation:

Total amount paid by the customer for the construction work = $600

Amount spent on the purchase of materials = 3/5 of the total amount = 3/5 * 600 = $360

Remaining amount = $ (600 – 360) = $240

Amount spent on travelling = 1/5 of the remaining amount = 1/5 * 240 = $48

Total amount spent = $ (360 + 48) = $408

Amount left after both the deductions = $ (600 – 408) = $192
