7. Ritu ate \frac{3}{5}  part of an apple and the remaining apple was eaten by her brother Somu. How much part of the apple did Somu eat? Who had the larger share? By how much?

Answers (1)

Given,

Part of Apple eaten by Ritu =    \frac{3}{5}  .

Part of Apple eaten by Somu:

\Rightarrow 1-\frac{3}{5}

\Rightarrow \frac{1}{1}-\frac{3}{5}

LCM of 1 and 5 is 5. So making the denominator of both fraction equal to 5, we get 

\Rightarrow \frac{1}{1}\times\frac{5}{5}-\frac{3}{5}

\Rightarrow \frac{5}{5}-\frac{3}{5}

\Rightarrow \frac{5-3}{5}

\Rightarrow \frac{2}{5}

Hence, The Part of Apple eaten by Somu is 2/5.

Now, As 

\frac{3}{5}> \frac{2}{5}

\frac{3}{5}- \frac{2}{5}=\frac{3-2}{5}=\frac{1}{5}

Hence, Ritu had a larger share of the apple by \frac{1}{5} part.
