# Nandini’s house is 9/10 km from her school. She walked some distance and then took a bus for 1/2 km to reach the school. How far did she walk?

**Solution:**

We will use the concepts of fractions to solve this.

The total distance from Nandini's house to school is given as 9/10km

Distance Nandini had covered by bus is 1/2 km

Total distance covered by Nandini on foot will be the difference of 9/10 and 1/2

= (9/10 - 1/2) km

LCM of 10 and 2 is 10

= [(9 × 2) - (1 × 10)] / 10

= (18 - 10) / 10

= 8/10

On simplifying to simplest form by dividing numerator and denominator by 2 we get

= 2/5.

Hence distance covered by Nandini on foot will be 2/5 km.
