## Given that The weight of fish caught by Neetu = 334 kg The weight of fish caught by Narendra = 212 kg Difference between the weight of Neetu's fish and Narendra's fish = 334−212 We can express a mixed fraction as an improper fraction as (Whole×Denominator) + NumeratorDenominator. Difference between the weight of Neetu's fish and Narendra's fish = 334−212=3×4+34−2×2+12=154−52 Now, the LCM of the denominator of the fractions 154 and 52 i.e. the LCM of 4 and 2 is 4. ∴ Difference between the weight of Neetu's fish and Narendra's fish =15×14×1−5×22×2=154−104 Difference between the weight of Neetu's fish and Narendra's fish =154−104=15−104=54 We can express an improper fraction as a mixed fraction by dividing the numerator by denominator to obtain the quotient and the remainder. Then the mixed fraction will be written as QuotientRemainderDivisor. [∵ 4)5(1 41] Difference between the weight of Neetu's fish and Narendra's fish =114kg So, Neetu's fish weighed 114 kg more than that of Narendra.
