A woman spends 3/8 of her money and has 25 left. How much money did she have in the beginning?

Let's assume that the woman had x amount of money in the beginning. According to the problem, she spent 3/8 of her money, which means she has 5/8 of her money left. We are also given that she has $25 left. So, we can create the equation: 5/8 x = 25 To solve for x, we need to isolate it on one side of the equation. We can do this by multiplying both sides by the reciprocal of 5/8, which is 8/5: x = 25 x 8/5 x = 40 Therefore, the woman had $40 in the beginning.

Who is the person on a Mercury dime?

The woman pictured on "Mercury" dimes is Miss Liberty. Her picture appeared on all dimes up till 1946 when President Roosevelt's portrait was put on the coin.The name "Mercury" dime is technically incorrect. They're supposed to be called Liberty dimes but the coin's designer chose to depict her wearing a winged liberty cap; the wings symbolize freedom. However the image so closely resembles the hat worn by the Greek god Mercury that the coins were almost immediately nicknamed "Mercury" dimes. The name has stuck so firmly that no one now calls them anything else.
