The sponsor

The school received money from the sponsor. She used one-third to buy computers, half of the rest to adjust the gym. It still has 4000 euros left. How many euros did the sponsor donate to the school?

Correct result:

x =  12000

Solution:


x/3+(x-x/3)/2 + 4000 = x

2x = 24000

x = 12000
