5. Salil wants to put a picture in a frame. The picture is cm wide. To fit in the frame the picture cannot be more than cm wide. How much should be trimmed?
Given, the width of the picture = cm.
The maximum width of the picture which can fit in the frame = cm.
Hence The length Salil should trim :
Now LCM of 5 and 10 is 10. So, let's make the denominator of both fractions equal to 10. So,
Hence Salil should cut 3/10 cm of the picture in order to fit it in the frame.
