Question

# Aarushi was given $\frac{5}{7}$ of a basket of oranges. What fraction of oranges was left in the basket.

Solution

## Let the total number of oranges in the basket = 1. Fraction of oranges given to Aarushi = $\frac{5}{7}$. Fraction of oranges left = $1-\frac{5}{7}=\frac{1×7}{1×7}-\frac{5}{7}=\frac{7}{7}-\frac{5}{7}=\frac{7-5}{7}=\frac{2}{7}$ Thus, $\frac{2}{7}$ fraction of oranges was left in the basket.MathematicsRD Sharma (2020, 2021)All
