# Miguel and three of his friends went to the movies. They originally had a total of $40. Each boy had the same amount of money and spent$7.50 on a ticket. How much money did each boy have left after buying his ticket?

Each boy will have $2.50 left. #### Explanation: If each boy of the total of $4$boys had an equal share of the $40, it means that each boy had 40/4=$10 each. Now each boy spent $7.50 on a movie ticket.
$x = 10 - 7.50$
$x = 2.50$
