# Sarita bought 2/5 metre of ribbon and Lalita 3/4 metre of ribbon. What is the total length of the ribbon they bought?

**Solution:**

We will use the concepts of fractions to solve this.

In the given problem we have to find the total length of the ribbon.

Here, the total length of the ribbon bought by Sarita is 2/5 m

And the total length of ribbon bought by Lalita is 3/4 m

To find the total length we need to add both the length obtained above.

The total length of the ribbon bought by both of them is 2 / 5 + 3 / 4

Taking LCM of 20

= [(2 × 4) + (3 × 5)] / 20

= (8 + 15) / 20

= 23 / 20 metre

Therefore, the total length of the ribbon bought by both Sarita and Lalita is 23/20 m
