# Bitoo and Reena

Bitoo ate 3/5 part of an apple and the remaining part was eaten by his sister Reena. How much part of an apple did Renna eat? Who had the larger share? By how much?

Result

R =  0.4
X = (Correct answer is: B) Y =  0.2

#### Solution:

$B = \dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 } = 0.6 \ \\ R = 1 - B = 1 - 0.6 = \dfrac{ 2 }{ 5 } = 0.4$
$B>R \ \\ \dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 } > \dfrac{ 2 }{ 5 } \ \\ 3>5 \ \\ X = B = 0.6$
$Y = B-R = 0.6-0.4 = \dfrac{ 1 }{ 5 } = 0.2$ Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
