Answer:for college, 1-1/2-1/5 = 3/10. Divided by 3 children, 3/10 /3 = 1/10

B. 400 = 1/10 of the total (from above), so 400 = x/10. x = 400*10 = 4000

Step-by-step explanation:Answer:1. 1/6 2. $2400

Step-by-step explanation:If Bo had 1/2 of his paycheck leftover to divide among his 3 kids, 1/2 divided by 3 is 1/6.

If 1/6 of his paycheck is $400, then all 6/6 of his paycheck would be $2400.
