Sarika spent 2/5 of her money to buy skirt. She then spent 4/9 of her remaining money on a belt. What fraction of her money was left?

Dear Student, here is an answer for your query.
Total money she had = Rs. x
Cost of skirt = 2x/5
Therefore, amount left = x- (2x/5)
​​​​= 3x/5
Now, cost of belt =( 3x/5 ) X (4/9)
now, amount left = (3x/5) - (4x/15)
= x/3
thus, the fraction of money left = rs. 1/3
