# Ila read 25 pages of a book containing 100 pages. Lalita read 2/5 of the same book. Who reads less?

**Solution:**

We use the concepts of fractions, reduce fractions, and comparing fractions to answer the given question.

Ila reads 25 pages out of 100 pages.

Fraction of 25 pages out of 100 pages = 25/100 =1/4

Lalita reads 2/5

Compare 1/4 and 2/5, we get

Cross Multiply the denominator 1 x 5 = 5 and 2 x 4 = 8

Since 5 < 8

1/4 < 2/5

Hence Ila reads less pages.
