# Vidya and Pratap went for a picnic. Their mother gave them a water bottle that contained 5 litres of water. Vidya consumed 2/5 of the water. Pratap consumed the remaining water.

(i) How much water did Vidya drink?

(ii) What fraction of the total quantity of water did Pratap drink?

**Solution:**

Simply multiply the total quantity of water by the fraction of water consumed by Vidya to find out how much she consumed. Subtract the fraction of water consumed by Vidya from the total to get what fraction of water Pratap did drink.

The total quantity of water in a bottle = 5 litres

(i) Water consumed by Vidya = 2/5 of total water

= 2/5 × 5 = 2

Thus, Vidya consumed 2 litres of water.

(ii) Water consumed by Pratap = 1 - 2/5 of the total water = 3/5

Thus, 3/5 of the total water consumed by Pratap.
