A received 1/4. B and split the other 3/4. B got 3/5 of 3/4 and C got 2/5 of 3/4, so B got (3/4)*(3/5) or 9/20 and C got (3/4)*(2/5) or 6/20. Taking the common denominator of 20, A got 5/20, B got 9/20, and C got 6/20. Multiplying everything by 20 gives 5:9:6.

Luke wants to find the difference 175 - 134. He has subtracted the hundreds and tens so far. What is the sum of the two numbers he has subtracted? How much does he still need to subtract?

SUM means adding not subtracting. so if you were wanting to add the total (the sum) of the amounts of the hundreds and the tens would be 170 plus 130 which would be 300 but the remainder from subtracting 130 from 170 would be 40. That would leave the single units 5 minus 4 of which the remainder is 1. So, the remainder from subtracting 134 from 175 is the reminder of subtracting the one hundred from the one hundred which is zero added to the remainder of subtracting the tens (70 minus 30) which is the remainder of 40 plus the remainder of subtracting the units of 5 minus 4 which is 1. So you need to add the 0 and the 40 and 1 which is the remaining sum of 41.

What is the simplest form for 61 over 82

61 ?
2 times 30 leaves a remainder of 1.
3 times 20 leaves a remainder of 1.
5 times 12 leaves a remainder of 1.
7 times 8 leaves a remainder of 5.
8 times 7 leaves the same remainder.

So, the numerator is a PRIME number, that cannot be "simplified".

The average age of 3 girls is 20 years and their ages are in the ratio 3:5:7.The age of the eldest girl is:

The average is 20, it means the total is 60. The sum of ratio is 15 (3+5+7)
Therefore the age of a girl is calculated by multiplying the respective ration with total and dividing by sum of ratio
Age of Eldest girl = 7 x 60 /15 = 28

Hope it helps! Good Luck!
