# Operation: Money Tracking

**Algebra**Level 1

An elementary student was asked to solve a certain problem by his teacher. The problem was all about counting money. The teacher said, "If I have 100$ in my pocket and I gave half of it to you but then you gave back triple the half I gave to you......" The student asserted directly, "Sir, you got 200$ in your hand then!" The teacher replied with a smile, "That is absolutely correct, but... what if my pocket money was 25$ all along and following the same process, how much money would be in my hand?"
