Question 6

# The smallest fraction, which should be added to the sum of $$2 \frac{1}{2} , 3 \frac{1}{3} ,4 \frac{1}{4} and 5\frac{1}{5}$$ to make the result a whole number, is

Solution

Take only fractional parts and add them ,

$$\frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{3} + \frac{1}{4} + \frac{1}{5}$$

= $$\frac{77}{60}$$

Nearest whole number will be 2 , i.e $$\frac{120}{60}$$

2 - $$\frac{77}{60}$$ = $$\frac{43}{60}$$

So, the answer would be option d)$$\frac{43}{60}$$.
