Q.8 Ila read 25 pages of a book containing 100 pages. Lalita read \(\frac{2}{5} \) of the same book. Who read less?


Answer :

Ila read 25 pages out of 100 pages
Fraction = \(\frac{25}{100} = \frac{25÷25}{100÷25} = \frac{1}{4} \)
Lalita read =\( \frac{2}{5} \)
\( \frac{2}{5} and \frac{1}{4} \)
By cross multiplication
4 × 2 and 5 ×1 8 > 5
\( \frac{2}{5} > \frac{1}{4} \)
Hence Lalita read less.
