Here when you say  total money, it means the amount of money she has at that moment.

let the amount she started with  be  S.

S/2  on groceries.    left with :  S/2
1/3 rd of it  on  transport:  so S/6.      She is left with  S/2 - S/6 = S/3
she spent  1/4th of that remaining in  a gutter.
So that is:  S/12.        She is left with  S/3 - S/12 = S/4

So then  S/4 = \$15

She started with  a sum of \$60.
