Question

Ella used 1/3 of a piece of ribbon to decorate a present,and 1 1/5 m of it to decorate another present. the lenght ribbon was 6m long. what was the lenght of the ribbon that was not used?

please help in a rush sorry thank you

Answer

 (1/3 ) x 6 = 2

[——————6m—————–]

[—-2m—][1  1/5 m]<—-?——>

Length of ribbon not used = 6 – 2 – 1 1/5  =  3  5/5 –  1  1/5   =  2  4/5    

Hence the ribbon not used is  2  4/ m
