# In a college of 300 students, every student reads 5 newspapers, and 60 students read every newspaper. The number of newspapers is ___.

Unitary method is a method where we find the value of a single unit from the value of multiple units and the value of multiple units from the value of a single unit.

## Answer: The number of newspapers is 60

Let's find the number of newspapers.

**Explanation:**

Let us approach this problem from the perspective of the number of reading sessions:

The total number of students is 300. Each student reads 5 newspapers.

The total reading sessions = 300 × 5 = 1500

In total there are 1500 reading sessions in a day.

Given that, 60 students read every newspaper.

In other words, one newspaper undergoes 60 reading sessions.

Hence, for 60 reading sessions, 1 newspaper is enough.

So, we need to find for 1500 reading sessions how many newspapers are required.

60 × N =1500

N = 1500/60 = 25

Therefore, 25 newspapers are required for a college of 300 students.
