The school carnival is divided into sections. The tanks are in 1/10 of the carnival. Games are in 4/10 of the carnival. Student exhibits are in 5/10 of the carnival. Another school decides to join the festival and so students must give up half of the exhibit space to the other school. What fraction of the total space is that?

    Answer: The space given up by the students is 1/4 of the total space.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Hi, to answer this question we have to analyze the information given:

    Tanks: 1/10 Games: 4/10 Student exhibits: 5/10

    Students must give up half of the exhibit space to the other school. So, we have to divide 5/10 by 2.

    5/10 : 2/1 = (5x1) / (10 x2) = 5 / 20

    Simplified (by 5) = 1 / 4

    The space given up by the students is 1/4 of the total space.

    Feel free to ask for more if needed or if you did not understand something.
