The answer is below........


























The correct answer is $20

The explanation? What seems to be throwing people off is the fact that the man sells the horse for $70 and then buys it back for $80, making it look like he spent 10 more dollars. But the correct way to solve the problem is to think of the two transactions as separate: -60 + 70 = 10 and -80 + 90 = 10.
