Question

2/5 of the guests at a party are men, 1/3 of the remainder are women and the rest are children. What fraction of the guests at the party are children?

Answer

total units = 5 x 3 = 15 units
(2/5) x 15 = 6 (men)
15 – 6 = 9 (remainder)
(1/3) x 9 = 3 (women)
9 – 3 = 6 (children)
6/15 = 2/5

Ans : 2/5.
