Answer:1/8 of the original sum still remains.

Step-by-step explanation:If you spend 3/4 of what you have, you have 1/4 left.

Now you spend 1/2 of that 1/4, so basically divide 1/4 by 2. When dividing fractions you can multiply the fraction by the reciprocal of the other fraction.

[tex]\frac{1}{4}[/tex] ÷ [tex]\frac{2}{1}[/tex] = [tex]\frac{1}{4}[/tex] * [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex]

= 1/8

So I think 1/8 of the original sum still remains.

Hope this helped, please mark brainliest if possible. Have a nice day.
