4. \(\frac { 13 }{ 18} \) – \(\frac { 6 }{ 13} \)=__________

**Solution:**

1. The two fractions have like denominators so you can add the numerators. Then:

\(\frac { 3+8 }{ 11} \)

=\(\frac { 11 }{ 11} \)=1

Therefore, \(\frac { 3 }{ 11} \)+\(\frac { 8 }{ 11} \)=1

2. \(\frac { 22 }{ 58} \) + \(\frac { 15}{ 18} \)

The fractions have, unlike denominators.

First, We have to find the Least Common Denominator and rewrite the fractions with the common denominator.

LCD(\(\frac { 22 }{ 58} \), \(\frac { 15 }{ 18} \)) = 522

Multiply both the numerator and denominator of each fraction by the number that makes its denominator equal to the LCD. This is basically multiplying each fraction by 1.

(\(\frac { 22 }{ 58} \)×\(\frac { 9 }{ 9} \))+(\(\frac { 15 }{ 18} \)×\(\frac { 29 }{ 29} \))=?

Complete the multiplication and the equation becomes

\(\frac { 198 }{ 522} \)+\(\frac { 435 }{522} \)=?

The two fractions now have like denominators so you can add the numerators. Then:

\(\frac { 198+435 }{ 522} \)=\(\frac { 633 }{ 522} \)

3. \(\frac { 35 }{ 38} \) – \(\frac { 12}{ 38} \)

The fractions have like denominators, So we can subtract the numerators.

\(\frac { 35-12 }{ 38} \)=\(\frac { 23 }{38} \)

4.The fractions have, unlike denominators.

First, we have to find the Least Common Denominator and rewrite the fractions with the common denominator.

LCD(\(\frac { 13 }{ 18} \), \(\frac { 6 }{ 13} \)) = 234

Multiply both the numerator and denominator of each fraction by the number that makes its denominator equal to the LCD. This is basically multiplying each fraction by 1.

\(\frac { 13 }{ 18} \) × \(\frac { 13 }{ 13} \)– \(\frac { 6 }{ 13} \) × \(\frac { 18 }{ 18} \)=?

Complete the multiplication and the equation becomes

\(\frac { 169 }{ 234} \) – \(\frac { 108 }{ 234} \)=?

The two fractions now have like denominators so you can subtract the numerators. Then:

\(\frac { 169-108 }{ 234} \) =\(\frac { 61 }{ 234} \)

**XI. **One-half of the people in the town are girls, \(\frac { 4 }{ 5 } \) of these girls are studying in other towns. What fraction of girls are studying in other towns?

**Solution:**

Given,Fraction of girls in the town = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \)

Fraction of girls studying in other towns = \(\frac { 4 }{ 5 } \) of \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \)

= \(\frac { 4 }{ 5 } \) × \(\frac { 1 }{ 2} \)

= \(\frac { 4 × 1 }{ 5 × 2 } \)

=\(\frac { 4 }{ 10 } \) =\(\frac { 2 }{ 5 } \)

Therefore, \(\frac { 2 }{ 5} \) of girls studying in other towns.

**XII. **In an office, \(\frac { 2 }{ 5 } \) of employees are women. What percentages are men?

**Solution:**

Given,

Fraction of women employees=\(\frac { 2 }{ 5 } \)

Fraction of men employees= 1-2/5

=\(\frac { 3 }{ 5 } \)

Now to know the percentage of men, we have to multiply with 100.

=\(\frac { 3 }{ 5 } \) × 100

=60%

Hence, the percentage of men is 60%.
