# 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 is represented as numerical value which can be defined as the parts of a whole.

## Answer: The fraction of bill paid by C,D and E is 1 /10 each.

Let's solve the given question according to the given conditions.

**Explanation:**

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 'x' each.

Let the complete bill be considered as one whole and the value of it is 1.

Hence, combining all the above data, 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

### Therefore, the fraction of bill paid by C, D and E is 1 /10 each.
