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.

÷ = *

= 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.
