Johnny spent 1/4 of his money on a new belt. 1/5 of it on a soda and $50 cake. If he had $85 left, how much money did he start with?

Kindly give me an equation here in arriving the answer. Thanks

What about the $85 he had left over?

Sorry Andrew, I got in too big of a hurry and did not write down the $85 on the left side of the equation.  I shouldn't get in such a hurry!
