Round 11

Date released: May 30th, 2001.
Date rewarded: June 6th, 2001.

Brucey B has just won a load of money playing Cheat! He puts 1/5 of his winnings in the National Neopian Bank, and 1/2 of his winnings he invests into shares.

After those investments Brucey realises he still has quite a lot left. He then goes to Neopia Central and spends 1/10 of his winnings on chocolate neggs! At the end of the day he goes home and puts his remaining 500 NP in his mattress.

How much did Brucey B win?

Brucey's spending: 1/5 + 1/2 + 1/10 = 4/5. He has 1 - 4/5 = 1/5 of his winning money. That amount is 500 NPs. Therefore, his winning amount is 500 NP * 5 = 2500 NPs.
