Answer:

Omar has #$117# left to spend.

Explanation:

The amount of money that Omar brought on vacation was #x# and #35%# of #x# is #$63#. This can be written as an equation:

#x xx35/100=63#

Multiply both sides by #100/35#.

#x=63xx100/35#

#x=6300/35#

#x=180#

If the amount of money that Omar brought on vacation was #$180# out of which he spent #$63#, the balance amount is #180-63# which is #$117#.
