## Challenge:

If $$\frac{1}{6}$$ of a number is $$2 \frac{7}{15}$$ less than $$6 \frac{1}{3}$$ of that number, $$1 \frac{4}{5}$$ of that number is how much less than 4?

A- $$2\frac{4}{15}$$

E- $$\frac{23}{6}$$

$11.99 Satisfied 123 Students The correct answer is C. Let x be the number. Then: $$\frac{1}{6 } x = 6 \frac{1}{3 }x – 2 \frac{7}{15} ⇒ 6 \frac{1}{3 }x – \frac{1}{6 } x = 2 \frac{7}{15 } ⇒ \frac{37}{6 }x = \frac{37}{15 }$$ $$X = \frac{2}{5 }$$ Then: $$1 \frac{4}{5 } x = \frac{9}{5 } × \frac{2}{5 } = \frac{18}{25 }$$ $$4 – (\frac{18}{25 }) = \frac{37}{25 } =\frac{82}{25 }$$ ### More math articles ### What people say about "Algebra Puzzle - Challenge 46"?
