    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.

    \frac{1}{4} ÷ \frac{2}{1} = \frac{1}{4} * \frac{1}{2}

    = 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.
