# three fifth of a number is greater than two fourth of a number by 6, Find the number

Suppose the number is x.
So,  three fifth of a number = $\frac{3x}{5}$
And two fourth of a number = $\frac{2x}{4}$
Now according to the question, three fifth of a number is greater than two fourth of a number by 6, So we have;

Therefore the number is 60.

Suppose the number is x. then we will make an equation with the help of quetion.

(3x/5)-(2x/4)=6

(12x-10x)/20=6 Here we are making both the denominator equal by taking the L.C.M.

2x/20=6

2x=6 X 20 we shift the denominator from L.H.S to R.H.S so the sign will change from / to X

2x=120

x=120/2 here the sign of X is converted into / .

x=60

hence the number is 60.
