Where money goes Fraction of allowance
Manavi Kuber
Saving Account ½ 1/3
Spend at mall ¼ 3/5
Left over ? ?

Given

From the given details we observe that

Manavi and Kuber each receive and equal allowance = ₹ 1260

Find out

We have to determine the amount left with each of them

Solution

Let us assume total cost be ₹ 1

For Manavi,

left over = Total cost – Total spends

= 1 – (½ + ¼)

= 1 – (2 + 1)/4

= 1 – (3/4)

= (4 – 3)/4

= ¼

 Amount = 1260 × ¼ = ₹ 315

For Kuber,

left over = Total cost – Total spends

= 1 – (1/3 + 3/5)

= 1 – (5 + 9)/15

= 1 – (14/15)

= (15 – 14)/15

= 1/15

So, Amount = 1260 × (1/15) = ₹ 84

Hence the table can be completed as

Where money goes Fraction of allowance
Manavi Kuber
Saving Account ½ 1/3
Spend at mall ¼ 3/5
Left over ¼ 1/15
