Q:
# Ashley uses 1/4 package of raisin for a fruit cake. She then uses 1/9 of the remainder for muffins. What fraction of the package of raisins dose she have left?

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex]\text {Fruit cake = } \dfrac{1}{4}[/tex]

[tex]\text {Raisin left = } 1 - \dfrac{1}{4} = \dfrac{4}{4} - \dfrac{1}{4} = \dfrac{3}{4}[/tex]

[tex]\text {Muffins = } \dfrac{1}{9} \times \dfrac{3}{4} = \dfrac{3}{36} = \dfrac{1}{12} [/tex]

[tex]\text {Raisin left = } \dfrac{3}{4} - \dfrac{1}{12} =\dfrac{9}{12} - \dfrac{1}{12} = \dfrac{8}{12} -= \dfrac{2}{3} [/tex]

Answer: She has 2/3 of the package left.

[tex]\text {Raisin left = } 1 - \dfrac{1}{4} = \dfrac{4}{4} - \dfrac{1}{4} = \dfrac{3}{4}[/tex]

[tex]\text {Muffins = } \dfrac{1}{9} \times \dfrac{3}{4} = \dfrac{3}{36} = \dfrac{1}{12} [/tex]

[tex]\text {Raisin left = } \dfrac{3}{4} - \dfrac{1}{12} =\dfrac{9}{12} - \dfrac{1}{12} = \dfrac{8}{12} -= \dfrac{2}{3} [/tex]

Answer: She has 2/3 of the package left.
