A, B ,C, D, and E went to a restaurant. A paid 1/2 of the bill, B paid 1/5 of the bill and rest of the bill was shared equally by C, D, AND E .What fraction of bill was paid by each?
Fraction are represented as numerical value, can be defined as the parts of a whole.
Answer: The fraction of bill paid by C,D and E is 1 /10
Let's solve the given question according to the given conditions
Fraction of bill paid by A = 1/2
Fraction of bill paid by B = 1/5
We need to find out the fraction of the bill paid by C,D and E.
Let us consider the fraction paid by C,D and E be as 'x' each
Let the complete bill be considered as one whole and the value of it is 1
Hence, combining all the above data above we get
A + B + C + D + E = 1
=> 1/2 + 1/5 + x + x + x = 1
=> (5 + 2)/10 + 3x = 1
=> 7/10 + 3x = 1
=> (7+30x) / 10 = 1
=> 7+30x = 10
=> 30x= 3
=> x = 3/30
=> x = 1/10
