let the total budget be 100
as per the question ,
restaurant spends one quarter of its monthly budget for rent = 25
half of the rest for food and beverages = 75/2 =37.5
therefore, percentage spent on food and beverage = 37.5

Spend on rent = 1/4

Spend on food and beverage= 1/2 of remaining = 1/2*3/4= 3/8

1/8= 12.5%, so 3/8= 37.5%

Assuming total = 100
Spend on rent = 25
Remaining = 100-25 =75
Half of 75 = 37.5( for food and beverages)
