# Anup went for shopping.He spent 1/2 of his money on books and 1/8 of it on food.What fraction of the money did he spent?

Please find below the solution to the asked query :

$\mathrm{Fraction}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{money}\mathrm{spent}\mathrm{on}\mathrm{books}=\frac{1}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Fraction}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{money}\mathrm{spent}\mathrm{on}\mathrm{food}=\frac{1}{8}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Now},\mathrm{fraction}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{money}\mathrm{spent}=\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{8}=\frac{4+1}{8}=\frac{5}{8}$
