Mr Sekhar had some money. He spent 1/4 of his money for sweets. 2/3 of the remainder for

fruits. The rest of the money for refreshments. If the amount spent on refreshment is RS 60,
how much money did he have from the beginning?


Let the mr shekhar have x money 
money spent for sweets is 1/4x
money spent for fruits is 2/3x
money left for refreshment is rs. 60
therefore x - (1/4x+2/3x)=60
                    x - 11/12x=60
                                x=720 rs ans...

The Brainliest Answer!
Let the amount be a
money spent in sweets= \frac{a}{4}
money spent in fruits= \frac{2a}{3}
money for refreshments=60
total money=a= \frac{a}{4}+ \frac{2a}{3}+60
a- \frac{2a}{3}- \frac{a}{4} =60
 \frac{12a-8a-3a}{12}= \frac{a}{12}=60
The money shekar had is 720
